The Physical Activity Foundation has received ACT Government funding to deliver a series of community-based physical activity pop-up events in eight suburbs per year for the next three years.
This will entail four events in each suburb providing a range of fun and engaging opportunities for kids, young people and their families to be physically active within their communities.
Our goal is to be a leading Australian physical activity advisory and delivery organisation, by providing a lifetime of physical education opportunities that reduce the incidence of preventable illness and disease through the delivery of fun, social activities for young people.
The community pop-up series will break down barriers to participation, by making the activities accessible, easy, free and fun.
