Why I support the future aquatic centre!
In their own words, here's what these community members have to say about this project and why you should contribute.Make a Donation
An indoor pool will provide a year-round opportunity for people to stay active. The winters are long and many people struggle to find ways of exercising when it is cold outside. A pool will provide an inclusive space for people young and old and of diverse abilities. Senior citizens, in praticular, will benefit from having a non-weight bearing activity. This will greatly improve the health and wellness of our community and visitors.DJCDr. Jessica Chiles
