Edmonton, Alberta Canada
"Moving helps our brains, it helps us learn, it helps our mental wellness and well being, moving outdoors connects us with NATURE!"
"[As a] retired gerontology nurse, [I am] always looking for education and inspiration. [I move] to stay healthy and avoid the health care system as long as possible."
"The more I move, the more I move. The reverse is also true: the less I move, the less I move."
"Running was my freedom, running was a quiet moment away from my kids, running was something that I could not imagine giving up."
"My health is a gift that determines the quality of the rest of my life. If I want the most, it is my responsibility to keep my body fit."
“Dance was my whole life until one day I was run over by a car…But now I am rebuilt. And I can skip, run and jump. I am free!”
“[T]his is also strengthening my heart, my lungs, my bones and I feel totally accomplished. There is nothing like that feeling when you get to the top of a mountain. So, you hate exercise, you are not alone. But start to find reasons to become a little more receptive because it is SO good for you! It’s not just about the weight.”
“I choose to move with My Sisters’ Place to raise awareness surrounding domestic violence. Team MSP allows me to combine my love of fitness with my love of advocacy. It has given me the opportunity to share My Sisters’ Place with groups and individuals I may not have had the opportunity to reach otherwise.”
“Something happened,” she [Sarah Marquis] said.
