National Aboriginal Physical Activity Awareness Week June 21st to June 25th

Posted: June 20th, 2014

or NAPAAW for short. The intent of the week is to promote physical activity within our urban and rural Aboriginal communities through organizing several simple and fun initiatives. APACC would like to support your community or organization to “kick-off” the inaugural National Aboriginal Physical Activity Awareness week. Therefore we have created a toolkit (14 downloads) and some posters (14 downloads) to support you with the 5 day campaign to be physically active across Canada.

The theme for this year’s NAPAAW campaign is: “Show Us Your Active Spirit”. We are hoping to inspire other communities, organizations, groups, teams etc. to have a fun filled 5 days of physical activity and share their stories, photos and/or ideas to help inspire others to join in the week and “Show Us Their Active Spirit”. The attached toolkit will help you start your own 5 days of activity. APACC itself will be participating by having our own kick off and active events throughout the week so feel free to follow along with us as well. Our events and ideas for activity will be posted online on our Facebook group page: our Facebook group page

Please take a look at the toolkit and feel free to distribute with your contacts. We would be happy to discuss this or any other inquires you might have. We can be reached at 604 269 3771 or at

Physical activity is great for the whole family, improves health and is FUN! Lets remind our communities that it doesn’t have to all be running laps and working out. The more people we get physically active the healthier our communities grow to be, so…
