BOCCIA HAS BEEN ADDED TO THE ParticipACTION 150 PLAY LIST FOR 2017

For Immediate Release

January 6, 2017

(Toronto, ON) Today at Nathan Phillips Square in Toronto, ON, the final list was revealed of 150 physical activities Canadians will be challenged to complete in Canada’s sesquicentennial year.  Boccia Canada is pleased to announce that boccia is one of the sports listed in the ParticipACTION 150 Play List. The 150 Play List is an initiative by ParticipACTION to help get Canadians moving as we celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday. The top 150 was compiled by Canadians voting for their favourite activities with input from a diverse group of experts, and this year Canadians are encouraged to try as many activities as possible and track their progress.

The official ‘150 Play List Celebrates Boccia’ day will be hosted across Canada on September 16, 2017. Many local clubs will be offering special promotions and events designed to allow Canadians to discover the great game of boccia. Stay tuned for further details and locations.
