We’re LIVE Online for
Leader Training!

Become an Indigenous RunWalk or 

Honour Your Health Challenge Leader!

The Indigenous Sport, Physical Activity and Recreation Council (I·SPARC) is pleased to announce that registration is open for this year’s Online Healthy Living Leader Training Sessions. Our healthy living team will be bringing you the training sessions live over Zoom, with all the engagement, activity and laughter you’re accustomed to in-person. These sessions are available to anyone working within Indigenous communities who wants to deliver an Indigenous RunWalk or Honour Your Health Challenge program.

While our sessions will be online this year, they will still be regionally focused and we encourage you to sign up for your region’s training dates. The Zoom links will be released closer to the training date. To keep you from getting zoomed out, we are offering a condensed agenda, lots of screen breaks and many opportunities to be active throughout the day!

If you’re brand new to leader training, welcome to our healthy living family! For new leaders, the first day of training is mandatory, offering sessions in program development, the holistic wellness model and active breaks. The second day is optional, but you won’t want to miss it! We’ll be offering sessions in mental wellness, nutrition and a leader panel on delivering programs throughout COVID-19. 

For return leaders, please join us for the second day of training to receive brand new content for your healthy living program and to reconnect with your healthy living family.
