Olympic boxer Mary Spencer inspires next generation of athletes at Summer Games

Ottawa (ON), 19 juillet 2013 – Le programme de leadership ACTIVEZ de Motivate Canada prendra de l’ampleur grâce au soutien financier de la Fondation Trillium de l’Ontario au cours des trois prochaines années. ACTIVEZ Ontario, une initiative mise en oeuvre il y a deux ans, vise à engager et à former des équipes de jeunes leaders afin qu’ils puissent établir des programmes scolaires et communautaires pour les jeunes favorisant l’estime de soi, l’activité physique et le leadership.

Today’s announcement includes support for Motivate Canada’s GEN7 program that pairs Aboriginal youth with role models and encourages them to lead healthy, active lifestyles while contributing to the betterment of their communities.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship® (UFC®) announced Thursday a financial contribution to Motivate Canada’s GEN7 program through UFC Community Works™ surrounding UFC® 161 EVANS vs. HENDERSON. The UFC Community Works™ program is designed to make meaningful contributions to the Canadian communities where UFC events are held. On June 15, the UFC will host its first-ever event in Winnipeg, with a pay-per-view event at the sold-out MTS Centre.
