*Please note that due to limited room capacity in Kamloops, we are referring leaders from the Cariboo region to attend the Prince George Training, held September 24 – 25th. This includes leaders living in or north of Williams Lake, including Soda Creek and Quesnel, as well as communities west of Williams Lake along highway 20 such as Riske Creek and Alexis Creek.
 
Return leaders will join us at lunch (12:15pm) on the first day of training, and new leaders will attend the full two days of training. 
  
At the conclusion of training, participants are eligible for up to $1000 in grant support for their Indigenous RunWalk or Honour Your Health Challenge community program.

  • Indigenous RunWalk: choose from an 8-week program gearing up participants for a 5K or a 13-week program gearing up participants for a 10K run/walk event. 
  • Honour Your Health Challenge: develop your own program focused on physical activity, healthy eating, respecting tobacco or healthy pregnancies – past programs include creating a community cookbook, “Family Fitness Fridays,” planting medicinal tea gardens, “Kick the Nic” tobacco program, “Moccasin Mamas,” and many more.

Registration closes on September 13th, 2019. Registration is limited and will be filled on a “first come, first serve” basis.
