I’m sure that many of you have been hearing about our new DPA and Phys Ed initiative called Run4Change. We have been (and will continue) to train for a 5km run/walk in May for the purpose of eradicating child poverty in Canada (Hamilton has a child poverty rate that is 38% higher than the rest of Canada). It is also a great way for all of us to improve our physical fitness.
We will be collecting funds to raise our goal of $500. The money goes directly back into our community – backpacks full of school supplies are provided to students in Hamilton living in lower-income areas.
In addition to giving back to the community, your child is gaining all the benefit of daily physical activity, learning to persevere through difficult tasks, and gaining better focus in school.
