Position Title Inclusive Active Lifestyle Volunteer
Job Description

Volunteer or partner with us to promote health, wellness & community connection. Be a part of an active movement that values diversity and inclusion.

The Friends of the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area (RSBBAA) and the George Genereux Urban Regional Park (GGURP) are thrilled to announce the Afforestation Area ParticipACTION Community Challenge Pilot for June! http://www.friendsareas.ca/events/ParticipACTION.html

We’re seeking volunteers and community groups from Saskatoon and the surrounding area to join us in promoting health, wellness, and community connection. This exciting initiative aims to engage citizens in physical activities that not only benefit their health but also contribute to the greater good of their community.

Why Should You Get Involved?

Partnering with us for this challenge allows volunteers and community groups to play an active role in shaping the narrative around health and wellness, and to be a part of a movement that values diversity and inclusion. Community Wellness Extravaganza: Celebrating Diversity, Fitness, and Connection

What’s the Challenge About?

The goal of the Challenge is to encourage individuals and organizations to track their physical activity (Move Minutes) and contribute to their community’s total Move Minutes. The more Move Minutes your community, and various orgnizations tracks, the better the community chance to win an amazing prize! Activities create a healthier, more vibrant community.

To assist in the activities, we have an event for each day in June celebrating a different activity, and commemorating diverse special days. We need you to help bring awareness to these special days. What are they you ask? http://www.friendsareas.ca/events/ParticipACTION.html
