About Move ‘N Groove
Move ‘N Groove was developed 7 years ago so that people of all ages and abilities can celebrate the joy of movement – and raise funds to support of The Movement Centre of Manitoba.
Move ‘N Groove 2017 – a 5 hour dance relay for the whole family – is on May 13, 2017 at the University of Manitoba. See Location Information tab for directions and map.
Teams registered for Move ‘N Groove collect pledges in support of The Movement Centre of Manitoba – a Conductive Education Rehabilitation organization that assists children and adults with mobility challenges including cerebral palsy, head injury, stroke, MS and Parkinson’s Disease. Fundraising is essential for The Movement Centre to help keep costs affordable for clients and families. See About The Movement Centre tab or more information.
