St. Francis Xavier University - Nova Soctia, Antigonish
GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting Motor Activities with X (MAX) at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, NS. MAX supports children ages 4-18 with various forms of physical, emotional, intellectual and developmental disabilities as they participate in community-based physical activity programs. Based in the University’s Department of Human Kinetics, service-learning students provide participant-centered support to individuals. Supports may include design of tailored physical activity programs and/or the promotion of inclusive participation in pre-existing programs. MAX currently supports a sledge hockey program, a skating program, and an adapted aquatics program. Funding from GoodLife Kids Foundation will help to grow the programs, providing more children with the opportunity to experience inclusive physical activity. MAX support gives children with disabilities the best chance to succeed in physical activity environments.
