A new initiative by Tantalus Wellspring Society will enable community members to access activities that contribute to mental and physical wellness.
Tantalus Wellspring Society has developed partnerships with local service providers and businesses to reduce financial barriers that may limit people’s ability to participate in activities that are not only fun and interactive but contribute to overall wellness. This project is supported by the generosity of organizations that have partnered and donations form community members and a grant from the Squamish Community Foundation.
There is no screening or proof of income required.
“We believe that people will take only what they need. Pricing has been set to ease the burden on our generous partners. If people are able to, they are welcome to contribute more. If these discounts do not remove the financial barrier, we are happy to work with people to support their access,” said Julia Bresalier.
Providers of fitness, yoga or other services that contribute to mental and physical wellbeing and want to become part of The Collaboration Project are asked to contact at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thus far, the society has partnered with Sacred Light Yoga, Shala Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, Ground UP Climbing Gym, and Brennan Park.
Through these partnerships, people can access yoga, climbing and other recreation activities at a reduced cost. Each partner is able to provide support in different ways and people are asked to check tantaluswellspring.ca for full details on participation.
