Beedie Makes Game-Changing Donation for Fortius’ KidsMove Schools Program

BBOT President & CEO Paul Holden at Fortius for Announcement of Beedie Donation

BBOT members Beedie and Fortius Sport + Health are partnering to expand the KidsMove program which helps youth ages 9 – 12 develop the skills, competency and confidence they need to be active in sport, for life.

The Fortius Foundation is excited to announce a game-changing donation of $27,000 from Beedie toward the expansion of the Burnaby KidsMove Schools program. This school year, KidsMove brought approximately 450 Burnaby students and their teachers to Fortius, from nine elementary schools. By June 2019, they will have delivered 90 two-hour sessions.

This donation from Beedie Cares allows Fortius to expand this program, for the first time, by bringing more support to Douglas Road Elementary. Through a series of in-school teacher training sessions and the installation of a sports equipment box, Douglas Road teachers will have the resources to integrate KidsMove principles into every physical education session.
