OUR Time to Play – Engaging Women 55-70+ in Sport and Physical Activity

release by CAAWS

November 17, 2011 (Ottawa, ON) – Women 55-70+ are a growing demographic group, warranting attention from Canada’s sport community. According to Statistics Canada, women 55-70+ will make up 20.4% of the entire Canadian female population by 2021. These `young seniors` do not want to slow down, in fact they want to do things they never had a chance to do, including sport and physical activity. This month’s Lunch and Learn will feature CAAWS’ successful Physical Activity and Sport for Women 55-70+ project, sharing the main challenges and solutions to participation for this age group, lessons learned through community-based pilot projects, and practical resources for sport and physical activity organizations. Shelley Callaghan, the project manager, will share stories and lead a discussion that will inspire you to take action on developing, enhancing or adapting services and programs for women 55-70+.

Please join CAAWS for this exciting professional development and networking gathering!
