APACC, a non-profit organization, is also a network for Aboriginal people involved in sports, recreation, fitness and traditional activities.
Besides APACC, officials from some of the other organizations that signed the national proclamation were from the North American Indigenous Games, Native Women's Association of Canada, Canadian Aboriginal AIDS Network and the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
To make things as easy as possible for them to take part, APACC annually sends out a tool kit, which provides plenty of information on what types of physical activities people can do.
This year APACC officials sent out more than 1,000 tool kits to First Nation communities, Aboriginal friendship centres and those who have an APACC membership across the country.
Thanks to the Detroit Regional Chamber's generosity, APACC held many meetings at its headquarters with its impressive view and superb equipment for our use.
Finally, I must express my eternal gratitude to Dick for giving a speech at our big dinner party and congratulating APACC for receiving a national award for being an outstanding chamber by the National Council of Asian Business Associations in 2006.
