Step Into Action has a New Partner

Special Olympics Nova Scotia would like to welcome GoodLife Kids Foundation as one of our major sponsors of our Step Into Action Program. Step Into Action is a pedometer-based exercise and nutrition measuring tool designed to increase physical activity and promote healthy eating amongst youth and adults enrolled in our school and community programs.

Special Olympics believes that every person with intellectual disabilities and their family should be empowered to preserve and understand what they need to do in order to optimize their health, and where accessible information and resources exist, we support them to further that vision.

We are proud that Goodlife Kids Foundation shares this sentiment. Over the next year, together we will watch as athletes and students keep an eye on how far they walk/run/wheel and eat in order to lead healthier lifestyles.

For more information please contact Tom Fahie, Youth Development Coordinator, at 902-719-6163 or email tfahie@sportnovascotia.ca.
