Take a look at the inspiring day in the video above.
We're excited to announce we are taking early bird registration for our upcoming 2017 Hope and Health Events now.
On our 5 year anniversary we are taking this time to reflect on the Hope and Health movement. Click here to see the short film.
5 Year Anniversary Hope and Health Event in Nanaimo on August 31st this year was a transformative and uplifting day for all who participated. Check out a few of the photo highlights...
It's hard to capture the transformative nature of a Hope and Health event, but we think all the photos from July 20, 2016 will give you some idea:
Thank you to the incredible community of volunteers who made our inaugural Hope and Health event at Musqueam an amazing experience for the children and youth. Check out all the additional photos below too!
We are SO grateful for the incredible support coming forward from local corporate sponsors who care so deeply for the health and well being of our Aboriginal children and youth. Thank you to Blue Sky Properties for your donation that will sponsor 50 children and youth to attend the Hope and Health event on July 20th at Musqueam. We salute you for your generosity and partnership in Hope and Health and for what you do every day to make a difference in our society.
A huge congrats to our friends in Northern BC who are building team spirit across communities with the children and youth at the center with their Hope and Health kick off this week. Sending you love and prayers for an amazing experience and look forward to see some pictures/videos of your day.
Thanks again for everyone that has helped to make this event happen this week.

Hope and Health Head Coach Jamie Merriman made some new friends at Musqueam this past weekend as we build awareness and excitement about the expansion of Hope and Health to the mainland, hosted on Musqueam’s beautiful territory July 20th!
We have some exciting surprises in the works for Hope and Health 2016! Extra special entertaining guests and lots of interesting stations in addition to our core skills and drills. Year 5 promises to be the best year yet!
