TELUS volunteers join KidsMoveMay 25, 2018 | by Lucy Fox, Marketing & Events Assistant
It’s another day at KidsMove with the waves of red, green, blue and yellow pinnies circling the gym in a frenzy of fun and activity. This time though, there is a new jersey colour on the court: the purple and white of TELUS, as several TELUS employees joined Fortius for their TELUS Days of Giving.
Since day one, TELUS has been an invaluable supporter of the Fortius Foundation and the programs offered here at Fortius Sport & Health. Last year, TELUS made a donation of $14,500 to KidsMove, helping us continue to grow the program.
That support from TELUS continued on May 10, 2018, with TELUS Days of Giving bringing ten TELUS employees to Fortius to take part in the program — and to have some fun of their own!
KidsMove consists of two-hour physical literacy sessions combining purposeful play with games and challenges to stimulate participants physically, cognitively and creatively. Most importantly, it’s fun! The program is powered by REACH, a collaboration between Fortius Sport & Health, the Steve Nash Foundation, Pro Motion Research Institute, and the IAD Group, and is provided at no cost to those who participate.
Thank you TELUS, for joining us in keeping the youth of our community active and enjoying play, and for your continued support of Fortius Sport & Health!
