CpraThe power of stories can help bring about positive change.

The ability of recreation, parks and community sport leaders to renew, retool, engage and contribute to community recovery depends on many things, including our willingness to work together. Sharing stories, ideas and innovations can help identify promising practices that can contribute to a collective return to sustainable operations.

That's why ReImagine RREC, a national project to support recreation, parks and community sport, is inviting recreation, parks and community sport leaders everywhere to share their stories.

Visit here to submit your story.
