ActiveMatch is a free online service helping individuals to find their (near) perfect exercise partner or small group. The purpose of this service is to help women who have been diagnosed with cancer connect with similar women who are looking for support and guidance to help start, continue, or change their exercise routines. Sign up now to create a profile and connect with others who are motivated to make healthy changes to their lifestyles, one step at a time.
ActiveMatch is also a research study. If you sign up for ActiveMatch, you will be offered to opportunity to participate in the research study designed to develop and evaluate the exercise partner service.
The first step is to sign up and create a profile by answering some basic questions. This profile will be used to help find possible matches for your exercise needs and it will become part of a database that can be searched by other women to find exercise match(es), contact each other, and start exercising or providing support.
NOTE: There will be some time (approximately 2-4 weeks) between completing the profile and match-making. In this early phase, we need to develop a database to ensure appropriate matches are available (i.e., the more women who sign up, the more possibilities there are for you). We thank you for your support.
We anticipate that the service will be open for matching as of June 15, 2015. Sign up now and you will receive notification that the system is ready for you to find your exercise partner(s) around this time.
The research involved in the development and evaluation of ActiveMatch is funded by a Canadian Cancer Society Research Institute Innovation Grant.
Currently, women who have been diagnosed with cancer are eligible to use ActiveMatch. Once we have evaluated the service, our goal is to open up ActiveMatch for all Canadians looking for exercise support.
