Moveo patient and track athlete Camryn Yuen is a 15-year-old student at Carson Graham Secondary School. For a required school project, Camryn has come up with the idea to team up with the North Shore Neighbourhood House to create a non-profit organization called Starting Blocks.
Starting Blocks is a foundation that gets sports equipment to people who may be less fortunate and not able to afford the luxury of sports and the equipment that many of us take for granted. Through various events, Camryn hopes to create an inventory of donated sports equipment, running shoes, socks, sports wear, and money used to buy sports equipment and gift cards to sporting stores.
Moveo Sport & Rehabilitation Centre will also be supporting Starting Blocks! Moveo will be setting up a donation bin for sporting equipment in our waiting area. Everyone who brings equipment in will be entered in a draw to win a free massage therapy session! Moveo is proud to be affiliated with such a bright young student athlete and is thrilled to help her out on her quest!
