Boogie the Bridge April 23
Boogie the Bridge is Kamloops’ largest celebration of movement. Boogie is about so much more than running or walking and a single day event.
Boogie the Bridge has inspired hundreds of people to make a difference in their lives, the lives of their families and the lives of their community members, through movement and community involvement.
Now one of Kamloops’ signature events, the “sea of red” is a visual representation of the passion, commitment and love that began this grass roots event and that continues to ground it to this day. Join us for this amazing event that is a total party on the run with bands, inspirational chalking, and all the cheering and encouragement you could ever want all along the route.
Participate (run or walk) in the 1K Kids’ Mini Boogie, 5K, 10K or 21.1K Half Marathon distances.
Boogie is for EVERYBODY and EVERY BODY.
Registration for the 26th Boogie the Bridge is Open!
Kindness Ninjas Strike Again
January is often a long cold dreary month with not much to look forward to but short tempers and inside days. But Team Awesome was very excited to receive a secret mission from Sensei Tansa to bring some sunshine and smiles to others around the school when they were feeling like January was never going to end. Studies show that kindness makes children happier, reduces stress and improves self-esteem. Kind actions activate the joyful area of the brain, and boost well-being. The Team was certainly joyful as they snuck around the school taping loving messages randomly on walls and doors for others to read to boost their well-being. Thank you Kindness Ninjas!

A Map of My Heart
What is love? What are the things that you love the most? If we could see inside your heart, what would we find there? These are the questions we asked during the Map of My Heart activity. We began with an amazing book called My Map Book by Sara Finelli. In My Map Book, Finelli inspires us to think about maps in a whole new way with wonderful images of maps including: “A Map of My Dog,” “A Map of My Day,” “A Map of My Stomach,” and yes, “A Map of My Heart.” With Valentine’s Day approaching, we wanted to discuss the theme of love and friendship with the children. To get them thinking about love, we focused on Finelli’s heart map and talked about what we might find in our own hearts. The finished pieces so charmingly represented all of the things the children hold dear – and we learned even more about what kinds of things/ experiences are really important to them.
