The Fortius Foundation Silent Auction is back!October 26, 2018 | by Andy Price, Executive Director, Fortius Foundation
UPDATE: To accommodate out-of-town donors, we’ve moved our Auction dates to start December 3rd.
From December 3 – 14, 2018 the Fortius Foundation will be holding another silent auction, with all funds raised supporting the KidsMove Schools program.
The last auction saw items from donors including Jeremy Lin, the Edmonton Oilers and the San Antonio Spurs, and raised $10,000 for Foundation programs like KidsMove.
KidsMove integrates physical, lifestyle and mental skills to support the development of children aged 9-12. Fortius Sport & Health, the Steve Nash Foundation, Pro Motion Research Institute, and the IAD Group have collaborated with Fortius to create this program.
Through a pioneering partnership with the Burnaby School District, KidsMove is now delivered as part of the school curriculum, bringing students and their teachers to Fortius for a 10-week program that is changing the Physical Education paradigm. For the 2018/19 school year, the program has expanded to nine schools across Burnaby, reaching 500 students and training around 20 teachers and education assistants to support high quality physical education in schools.
