As a teacher, I see students needs for physical activity continue to be marginalized with increased time on screens for school and entertainment. I have worked over the last 10 years to provide young people with quality physical activity opportunities to strengthen their fitness and prepare their minds for learning. To overcome the current challenges both physically and mentally for young people, the funds will be used to provide an outdoor program focused on personal and mental fitness with specific skills development related to the outdoors. Safety equipment, outdoors equipment, a small portion for marketing, and celebratory prizes will round out the items to be purchased for the program.
The program will begin with an orientation in March 2021 to set the tone, expectations, and participation list. The group will meet biweekly developing our group dynamics until summertime allows us to explore the coulee region waterways via canoe, hiking, and biking.
With this idea in my heart and a vision for a better future for young people, I call to you for support financially, professionally, or otherwise. Your contribution will help young people have greater appreciation for themselves, others around them, and Mother Nature.
I appreciate those of you who took the time to read and engage with this post. I am grateful to those who share in this sentiment related to young people. I am humbed to be in a spot to make this dream a reality.
With Love, be well,
