Accessibility Program

The Shape Up Foundation’s Accessibility Program provides financial support to give young people ages 5 to 16 from financially disadvantaged backgrounds access to leisure activities in camps that promote the adoption of healthy habits. The program allows Shape Up Plus camps to stress the importance of adopting healthy habits (HH) to the most vulnerable youths during the summer break. There are 2 parts to the Accessibility Program:
