Go Girls & Grow Boys
Go Girl event promotes health, confidence and physical activity to Grade 5 girls in Red Deer Public School District.
“The whole premise of this event is so positive, and it really targets an important and impressionable age group of young girls,” explains Barb Marsh Program Coordinator for RDC’s Be Fit For Life Centre.
The event provides learning opportunities through a variety of interactive sessions, which includes nutrition, body confidence, tumbling, soft ball and even triathlon.
“Along with the value of these important health lessons, girls have the opportunity to meet new friends throughout the day,” says Marsh. “Our goal is for them to remember the positive lessons they learned at the event and carry these throughout their lives.”
With more than 600 students expected, the event will be led by nearly 30 instructors who will guide the students through activities and provide them with fun and valuable healthy lifestyle lessons.
Grow Boy event is for all Gr. 5 boys in Red Deer Pulbic School District . The boys will explore four domains of growing up healthy and happy throughout the day as they each participate in several fun and educational activities revolving around the themes of Respect, Understanding, Relationships and Responsibility.
