On October 1, 2015 at the 11th annual in motion  and Nutrition Positive Leadership Symposium, school teachers and student champions from across Saskatoon Health Region worked together to find creative solutions to the hard-hitting reality that less than 15 per cent of Saskatchewan children and youth are meeting physical activity guidelines, and only 30 to 40 per cent are eating the recommended minimum number of fruit and vegetable servings each day.

The theme of this year’s symposium was the Amazing Race. The race challenged school teams to complete six stations, road blocks and pit stops focused on physical activity and healthy eating. The action-packed day gave student leaders ideas and skills to help build a healthy school community.
