  • Upcoming Event: Shoe Drive

    Healthy Brandon in motion is hoping to help remove the barrier of not having proper athletic wear for those with low income, by partnering with Samaritan House Ministries to address the issue. Healthy Brandon in motion has targeted key organizations in the community and in the fitness industry to help collect gently used athletic shoes, with good support, by placing donation bins in these organizations. The shoes that are collected will be taken to Samaritan House for distribution to those who need them. Healthy Brandon in motion is hoping that this is one more step forward in helping to support people in Brandon to engage in physical activity by having the proper, supportive footwear to wear. At the same time, wearing proper footwear, consisting of a flat or low, wide heel, with a non-slip sole, will prevent falls. Thanks to Brandon University Healthy Living Centre for kicking off this initiative with a very generous donation of gently used athletic footwear, water bottles and sports equipment. Please check out our website at www.brandoninmotion.ca or check our Healthy Brandon in motion on facebook or twitter for more information and shoe drive drop off locations in Brandon.
