Here are some words of encouragement from our own healthy living leaders:

“My favourite things were the engagement and all-inclusiveness. With it being a healthy leader training program, I was nervous that everyone was going to look like they lived in the gym and being a bigger girl myself I felt so incredibly encouraged and motivated when I saw that everyone was of all shapes and sizes and colors and personalities it was truly amazing and filled my heart.”

– RTS Participant

“I felt included and part of a team immediately. It was a great experience.”

– RTS Participant 

“I worked with one female athlete at Thompson Rivers University who said she attributed staying in school and getting to the North American Indigenous Games to the opportunities she was provided from the Honour Your Health Challenge.”

– HYHC Leader

“One of my students is wanting to become a Law Enforcement Officer, and she was concerned that she would not be able to keep up with the physical aspect of the program, so was considering not applying at all. She has now learned a healthier way of eating and in turn has more energy and has begun to be more active and is preparing herself for the physicality of this training. Her confidence has also improved.”
