Health through Sport – Past, Present & Future Award Winners!
In late June 2017, the Kinesiology Program at University of Guelph Humber in partnership with the National Aboriginal Diabetes Association announced a travel award competition to support travel for young Indigenous athletes attending the North American Indigenous Games 2017 (NAIG) in Toronto, Ontario, July 16 – 22.
Four (4) awards in the amount of $500 each were available for eligible NAIG 2017 athletes. In keeping with the theme of this year’s NAIG event with a focus on past, present and future, the applicants were asked to reflect on the role that sport has played in their health throughout their lives and how they see it contributing to their health in the future. Applicants were welcome to comment on how sport impacts their their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health.
On July 12, 2017, four (4) winners were selected and notified of their awards.
