Kinesiology volunteers staff the Amherst-Pelham Regional School's first Athletic Equipment Swap.

On March 6 and 7, members of the UMass Kinesiology Pediatric Physical Activity Lab and undergraduate program volunteered at the Amherst-Pelham Regional School's first Athletic Equipment Swap. Faculty member Tom St. Laurent and doctoral student Christine St. Laurent organized the event in collaboration with the APRS’s Parent-Guardian Organization. The purpose of the Swap was to encourage Amherst area families to donate outgrown athletic gear and have the opportunity to receive free gently used equipment for their children.
