The Spruce Meadows Leg Up Foundation is pleased to run their UNSTOPPABLE Virtual Fundraiser in support of Spirit North during the Spruce Meadows September Series. This fundraiser will run till September 19, 2021 and they are hoping they can count on your support.
Spirit North is a charitable organization that uses land-based activities to improve the health and wellbeing of Indigenous children and youth, empowering them to become unstoppable in sport, school and life. Last year, Spirit North delivered programs to over 6,300 Indigenous youth and children in 62 communities and 77 schools.
Beckie Scott, Canada’s most decorated cross-country skier is the founder of Spirit North. In 2015, the federal government published the Truth and Reconciliation report and in reading the 94 Calls to Action, Beckie saw an opportunity to help, which sparked the creation of Spirit North.
Meaningful connection to the land is pivotal, and regular access to sport and land-based activity improves physical, mental, spiritual and community health. Spirit North’s programs have had transformative power – Indigenous youth becoming leaders, achieving academic success and becoming vibrant, engaged members of their communities.
