When CanAssist moves into CARSA in the spring of 2015, the UVic organization will be perfectly positioned to attract even more students to engage in activities that benefit people with disabiities -- and the students themselves. Each year, about 500 students participate in the CanAssist program through a variety of ways.
An interview with veteran journalist (and UVic's 2014 Harvey S. Southam Visiting Lecturer) Tom Hawthorn looks at the benefits CARSA will bring to campus. From attracting budding Olympians and Paralympians to average Joes and Janes, Hawthorn lauds the capacity of CARSA to put Vancouver Island on the map.
Basketball champs and Vikes alumni Chris Trump and Steve Moore show us how to reach even higher.
When life gets bent out of shape, you can count on yoga at UVic to strike a balance. Students, staff and community members will soon enjoy a new yoga studio in CARSA.
