SPIRIT PARAPAN AMERICAN CHALLENGE PROJECT

May – August 2015

 

Description of the Spirit Parapan American Challenge Project

The Spirit Parapan American Challenge project consists of implementing 40 interactive assemblies in 40 English speaking schools and summer camps in the Province of Quebec between April 1st and August 15, 2015. The project will reach 12,000 – 15,000 kids from age 7 to 17 as well as educators. Through the interactive assemblies, the children and educators will learn about the Pan and Parapan American games, the importance of teamwork and being active, to better understand what it means to live with a physical impairment and how people overcome obstacles and challenges. Dynamix, a leader in team-building and character development for kids will be animating the assemblies.
