RECOVERY THROUGH FITNESS: EXPO 2020
Across our communities in Manitoba people of all ages, gender and economic circumstances are struggling with mental health, substance abuse and limited resources necessary to create a well and balanced life.
In order to contribute to the development of a healthy and strong community, city, region and province we must work together to find locally-driven solutions. Business, government, knowledge institutions and civil society all have a role to play in the well-being of where we live, work and play and where our children will grow.
On Saturday April 4, 2020 Recovery Through Fitness: Expo 2020 will gather experts in the fields of fitness, disease prevention, and recovery at Canad Inns Regent in Winnipeg, Manitoba on Treaty No. 1 Territory. Guided by traditional Indigenous ceremony and prayer, this safe and encouraging space will allow participants to share stories and tools to essential for physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual growth and healing.
Councillor Bava Dhillon of Sapotaweyak Cree Nation set to open the event knows first hand the importance of better access to fitness, mental health and nutritional support in First Nation communities across Manitoba, “Solutions to our issues from addiction to diabetes start with proper access to support,” Councillor Dhillon said, "It will be up to community-led healing initiatives like this that we can restore health and harmony for the benefit of everyone." This full-day conference also boasts a special keynote from Brent Fikowski, top CrossFit athlete and 2017 Second Fittest Man on Earth, who will share an inspiring up-close and personal address on how to build a resilient mindset.
With a focus on mindset, disease prevention and creating balance through the knowledge of the Indigenous Medicine Wheel teachings, we will learn what we can all do today to help build strong and healthy communities in Manitoba for ourselves and for future generations to come.
We are looking forward to connecting with you!
