Please visit our website to see our full agenda

If you’re brand new to leader training, welcome to our healthy living family! For new leaders, both days of training are mandatory. We have a jam packed agenda, and you won’t want to miss a single minute of all the fun! 

For return leaders, please join us at 1pm on the first day of training to receive brand new content for your healthy living program and to reconnect with your healthy living family.

At the conclusion of training, all participants are eligible for up to $1000 in grant support for their Indigenous RunWalk or Honour Your Health Challenge program.
