FitSpirit

Background

Fitspirit is a non-profit organization whose mission is to help teenage girls discover the advantages and the enjoyment that come from taking part in physical activity in an environment that is positive, promotes a healthy self image and is open to everyone. This knowledge will allow them to develop a healthy lifestyle based on realizing their own potential.

Full Description

With a grant from the Foundation, FitSpirit will build a network of trainers within the school system across Ontario and Quebec and develop partnerships to launch programs in Nova Scotia and BC. It will also enable them to hire a Director of Operations to manage program activities and business plan development, allowing the Executive Director to concentrate on building partnerships and developing a national expansion strategy.
