A cool new initiative from the Canadian Paralympic Committee is now up and running following a grant from the Milos Raonic Foundation.

The Milos Raonic Foundation generously provided a $30,000 grant to the CPC to help launch the online tool, which aims to help kids with a disability get active in sports. Free and easy to use, parents, players and professionals can go to paralympic.ca/find-an-activity to access resources, activity plans and more.
“I’m very pleased to see that the Find an Activity tool has been successfully launched and is now helping increase participation in parasport,” said Raonic, in the press release issued Thursday. “I encourage Canadians to check out this resource and to spread the word among their networks so that more children with a disability can experience the many benefits of becoming active in sports, such as friendship, confidence and fitness.”
With Canada’s strong contingent of wheelchair tennis athletes and exciting schedule of tournaments throughout the year, this is another step toward helping Canadians find sports and activities like tennis to continue building a lifelong commitment to healthy living.
