Members of ALIVE and youth messengers from the GEN7 program recently attended and volunteered at the 1st Annual National Aboriginal Physical Activity Conference, hosted by the Aboriginal Physical Activity and Cultural Circle (APACC). The Conference was held as an opportunity to discuss and share ideas about the promotion of Aboriginal health and well-being through sport, recreation and physical activity. As the nation’s largest conference concerning physical activity in the Aboriginal community, The 1st Annual National Aboriginal Physical Activity and Cultural Circle was a unique opportunity for education and networking.
The APACC is a Vancouver-based network for Aboriginal People involved in sports, recreation, fitness and traditional activities. It is a registered non-profit organization with the mission to “create a community of mentors, leaders, participants and supporters who promote physical activity as a means to health and wellness”.
