Oakville celebrates receipt of provincial grant with free family skate at River Oaks Community Centre on July 18

To celebrate Oakville receiving a $104,310 two-year grant from Ontario Sport and Recreation Communities Fund (OSRCF), the town will host a free Make Your Move Oakville family skate on Thursday, July 18, 2013, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at River Oaks Community Centre.

Oakville residents are invited to ‘beat the heat’ and join Mayor Rob Burton, Oakville MPP Kevin Flynn and the Make Your Move Oakville team at this summer skate featuring free skate and helmet rentals.

With support of OSRCF funding, over the next two years the town will expand its Swim to Survive Program to include programs for families; launch the Road to the Podium program with badminton, basketball, soccer, and tennis lessons; offer guided walks on Oakville trails; present a series of workshops for volunteers in recreation; and expand the skate and helmet rental service to two additional locations.

Make Your Move Oakville is the town’s public education and awareness program that promotes the benefits of healthy lifestyles, and encourages residents to get more active through sport and recreation. Since 2007, the Town of Oakville has received over $300,000 in funding from the OSRCF for its Make Your Move initiative. Visit the Make Your Move page for more information.
