Healthy Living Leader Training Sessions

Designed to bring together community leaders and individuals who are passionate about supporting health and wellness, a series of five annual regionally based Leader Training Sessions are delivered in partnership with the Indigenous Sport, Physical Activity & Recreation Council and SportMedBC.

Workshops offered at the sessions combine leader training for both the Aboriginal RunWalk and the Honour Your Health Challenge programs. The sessions are designed to build leadership capacity within Indigenous communities and promote healthy living in key areas such as, but not limited to: increased physical activity, healthy eating, reduction of tobacco misuse and healthy pregnancies. At the conclusion of the two-day Leader Training Sessions, participants will be eligible to apply for a grant of up to $1,000.00 to support the delivery of an Aboriginal RunWalk program or to create a healthy living project as part of the Honour Your Health Challenge.
