Walking, bowling, dancing, swimming and yoga before breakfast?

Dancing bear carvingBCCPD is looking for people with disabilities or chronic health conditions who have experienced the transition from an inactive lifestyle to a regular practice of physical activity (broadly defined).  We’re working with 4th year kinesiology students from UBC. They will interview you about your experience and the ways physical activity impacts your sense of mental and physical wellbeing. Based on your conversation, the students write a short story for publication in future issues of Transition magazine. Your tips and success stories will inspire others.

While the students would appreciate the opportunity to meet people in person (at the BCCPD office) for the interviews, it may be possible to do an interview by phone if you reside elsewhere in the province. Your name will not be used in the Transition articles if you prefer to remain anonymous. Everyone interviewed will have their name entered in a draw for a gift card for a store in your community. Thank you in advance for sharing your experience with our service learning students and our Transition readers!

For more information or to participate, contact Shelley at 604-875-0188 in Vancouver (toll-free 1-877-232-7400) or email wdi@bccpd.bc.ca.
