On this day communities across Canada will be coming together to participate in sporting experiences, get moving and celebrate the power of sport.”

No registration is required, and the event is free.

All ages and abilities are encouraged to participate!

Simply show up in running shoes with some excitement to try new activities.  Gym ringette will run in the gym from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

The grant received for this event will leave the legacy of new ringette equipment for the high school.

Wheelchair basketball will run from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and the final sport of gym curling will run from 1 to 2:30 p.m. “In Summerland, we are excited to provide an opportunity for people of all ages and abilities to participate in sports that perhaps are new to them,” Mitchell said.

Located in the gym of SSS, ringette, wheelchair basketball and curling will be offered free of charge due to a grant from Participaction.

“This event is about bringing people together to laugh and learn together, while being active at the same time,” Mitchell said, “The collective energy of people participating in sport together in a fun, safe and caring environment unites people of all ages and strengthens community bonds. Drop in for one sport or stay for the whole day.”
