Join the conversation for helping kids get healthy

imageJoin a community conversation about how to implement the Healthy Kids Community Challenge.

Burlington is one of 45 communities across Ontario taking part in Ontario’s Healthy Kids Community Challenge, uniting communities with a common goal: promoting children’s health through physical activity and healthy eating. We are developing action plans for physical activity and healthy eating.

In five areas across Burlington, community members and local organizations are forming Neighbourhood Action Teams to have conversations about community activities, resources, information. Joining a conversation is a great way to get involved and to ensure families and community organizations are guiding the development of the action plans; to learn about your neighbourhood; and to have an impact on getting Burlington’s kids moving and eating well.

Upcoming dates and locations are:

  1. Wed. March 30, 12:00—2:00 pm

Aldershot HUB, 261 Plains Rd E

  1. Thurs. March 31, 6:30 – 8:30 pm

I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.

What's your take?
