Wherever you find success, you'll find strong leaders.
That's why Winnipeg in motion wants communities to identify "champions" within their community who can help Winnipeg communities get "in motion".
In motion "Champions" are individuals within your community that are committed to helping make physical activity part of everyone's daily lives for health benefits and enjoyment.
It is important to have a strong local champion to lead your community physical activity strategy. A champion who understands the community and the people within your community is important to the success of the community's physical activity strategy. Community leaders can help bring enthusiastic people together, facilitate, support and maximize individual strengths.
Winnipeg in motion needs communities to identify leaders from all walks of life – individuals, families, community groups, schools, businesses and government. Leaders who are passionate about the value of regular physical activity. Leaders with the confidence to bring others together to work towards a common goal. And leaders who dare to dream and have the perseverance to make those dreams come true.
