HealthBeat Celebrates NIPD in Canim Lake
On June 21, 2019, SportMedBC and ISPARC staff celebrated National Indigenous People’s Day with the Canim Lake Band.
Thank you to the Canim Lake Band community, who welcomed us to their traditional territory, and to our ARW and FitNation leader, Tish Diamond, for inviting us.
With plenty of festivities, including a 2km and 5km run, an Amazing Race competition, a bannock baking contest, a Lahal game, a Rethink Your Drink station supplied by ISPARC, drumming and dancing, the day was a huge success!
It was a wonderful way to celebrate Indigenous people and communities. We look forward to our next visit!
