Para NB – Sport and Recreation and Ability New Brunswick would like to thank The Greater Saint John Community Foundation for their support in increasing the capacity of our Equipment Loan Service, a lending bank of adapted recreation equipment, to provide specialized equipment for individuals in the Greater Saint John area with a physical disability at no charge to participate in para sport activities.
Specifically, this project will make equipment from the Equipment Loan Service readily available to Saint John Residents by increasing the capacity of the service through the purchase of para sport equipment. It will also develop and execute communication strategies for para sport initiatives in the Saint John area.
The opportunity to acquire much needed para sport equipment and communicate para sport activities to the Saint John community will serve as a springboard to make Para NB a trusted resource for safe adapted sports and recreation in Saint John. With this project, Para NB can offer a variety of inclusive recreation options to area schools, support the development of adapted sport clubs, bring para sports to community events, and increase physical well-being through sport for individuals of all ages and abilities in Greater Saint John.
