PLAY Shuswap has been focused on promoting physical literacy and it's development in Shuswap community members through education and community outreach projects for the past five years. Unfortunately, due to a number of factors, PLAY Shuswap's Board has made the difficult decision to dissolve PLAY Shuswap as of December 31, 2023.

Initially, our main purpose was to come together to collaborate on helping our communities be more active. We know this collaboration can and will continue.

We would like to thank everyone who has been involved as a board member, volunteer, participant, community partner, staff member or donor along the way. We truly could not have done it without you.

Remember: Move Together, Live Better ~ For Life.
