    FitSpirit motivates young women in Ontario schools to become physically active and inspires them to stay active throughout their lives.

    The FitSpirit school program promotes a positive physical activity experience and fosters belonging and togetherness. FitSpirit Celebrations are high-energy events that bring together thousands of girls (Grades 7-12) for a memorable day that includes a 5km or 10km run/walk, activation stations, and exciting speakers that will cheer participants on and keep them moving, inspired, and having fun all day!

    2019 Ontario Celebration Events:

    Windsor: May 7, 2019 (Vollmer Culture and Recreation Complex)
    Toronto: May 9, 2019 (Downsview Park)
    Ottawa: May 14, 2019 (Canadian Aviation and Space Museum)
    Sudbury: May 28, 2019 (Kivi Park)

    To be part of the FitSpirit school program schools can register to be a partner-school in the fall of 2019 and will then receive tools and services to encourage physical activity prior to the next Celebration Event.
