Press Release

Join Us Online!

The Indigenous Sport, Physical Activity and Recreation Council (I·SPARC) is pleased to announce that registration is open for the 2021 Healthy Living Leader Training Sessions! The sessions will be offered live over Zoom, filled with learning, movement and laughter. These sessions are open to all community members who want to deliver an Indigenous RunWalk or Honour Your Health Challenge program.

Region Dates
Northwest / Northeast September 27 – 28
Interior October 6 – 7
Vancouver Island October 26 – 27
Vancouver Costal / Fraser November 4 – 5

While our sessions will again 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 numerous screen breaks and many opportunities to be active throughout the day! 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.
