Posted: 29-Oct-2019 by All Abilities

Maccabi All Abilities recently launched a trial of its new Buddy Program. This program aims to promote healthy lifestyles and build social connections by connecting Maccabi All Abilities participants with buddies from the wider Maccabi Community with a shared interest in sports and recreation. 

The participant and buddy catch up on a regular basis to participate in the sport/active recreation activity of their choosing. Our trial is being run with five awesome buddies and participants. They are playing basketball, going to gym, swimming and going walking.

This program provides more avenues for our members to play a sport or engage in a recreational activity they may otherwise be unable to participate in. We are really excited by this program and the potential opportunities it can offer to both members and buddies alike. Our goal is to roll out the program out to a broader cohort of Maccabi All Abilities participants next year- stay tuned for more updates!
