- her story
When Theresa visited the schools during last year’s ONERUN campaign the student response to her talks was positively overwhelming. As a result of that, she will once again visit schools in south-western Ontario. The focus of her school visits has shifted from one of being a cancer survivor to one of providing our youth with inspirational messages on fitness, self-esteem, nutrition, commitment and the rewards of giving back to the community. Theresa will still use the message “from challenge to triumph” during her school visits.
The program is called KIDSTRONG: it promotes youth fitness through school visits (both elementary and secondary) and through an annual Youth Summit (in the spring of 2012 date TBA), which is geared for students and their caregivers. GoodLife is the title sponsor of the event, as well as the School Outreach Program.
Please watch for future announcements about KIDSTRONG. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students greet Theresa on ONERUN day. She will meet many more with the launch of KIDSTRONG!
