CAAWS’ Mothers in Motion to support eight community programs

March 25, 2010 - The Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women and Sport and Physical Activity (CAAWS) is pleased to announce the successful communities that will receive support from the Mothers in Motion program, made possible through funds from the Public Health Agency of Canada.

Eight communities across Canada were selected to collaborate with CAAWS on the development and implementation of physical activity and/or sport program for mothers of low socioeconomic status (LSES). These communities will each receive support valued at $2,000.

CAAWS is excited to partner with these organizations to help educate LSES mothers on the benefits and importance of physical activity, and promote the importance of leading a healthy, active lifestyle.
