Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada developed Cool MovesTM, a healthy lifestyle program in response to the growing health crisis threatening Canada’s kids. The program tackles poor eating habits and inactivity among kids aged 8 to 12.

Since its launch in 2005, the Cool MovesTM program has helped thousands of children and youth across Canada to eat smart, play cool and realize the benefits of nutritious eating and regular, physical activity.

Cool MovesTM provides children with fun activities and healthy recipes, and shows them how to make them part of their daily lives.  In Edmonton, funding for this program is provided in part by The Butler Family Foundation.  Our sincere thanks for their generous support.
Recreational programs are supported by caring community leaders.  Click here to learn about the efforts of Jays Care.
