Hi Folks just wanted to share a thought with you regarding this past weekend. First the closing of the Commonwealth Games saw Canada collect 82 medals and finish in third place out of 71 countries. Second great moment, Canada dominated the CITI Open Tennis tournament. In the Men's final, two Canadians battling it out for the championship. This is Canada in the US capital don't forget.
Third great moment, one of our own member groups the Stars Orienteering group brought three gold medal home from a major competition in Whistler.
We all should be very proud of our athletes and the enormous effort they have to put in to be able to compete at International levels.
What does all this have to do with Active Cambridge ? Well this calibre of athlete does not just happen, they come from a strong infrastructure where they are coached and nurtured from entry level to world class athlete. That's where you all can take a big bow because in many cases you are the start of that journey for many of our Cambriddge youth.
Celebrate Canada's performance on the world stage for sure and also celebrate that you and your organizations are playing a huge role in inspiring and engaging our youth on to continued Canadian successes.
After 40 years in the corporate world I happily accepted the post of Active Cambridge Activator a couple of years ago. As a personal trainer I felt I could bring some incite and enthusiasm to a subject that I feel very passionate about, physical and mental well being.
