Use of Funding: InMotion Network’s three Physical Activity funding programs are funded through AGLC gaming proceeds. All funds acquired through gaming must be used in accordance with AGLC policies. The heart of the policy is that all funds must be used on items that are essential to hosting a Go Girl, Girls in Motion, or Women in Motion program. AGLC has determined that all funds raised through gaming endeavours must be used to support not-for-profit organizations in Alberta and as such InMotion Network is not permitted to fund any level of government. Gaming Funds to support the three physical activity projects submitted through schools, towns, municipalities, etc. must flow through local not for profit groups.
