Run with the Chiefs Gets Community Moving in the Right Direction

“It’s not what I say. It’s what they see,” said Kevin Chief MLA for Point Douglas and Minister of Children and Youth Opportunities for the Government of Manitoba.

That is the inspiration behind his desire to team up with Winnipeg Police Chief Devon Clunis to hold a Run With the Chiefs – a special run with the students at Norquay School.

With the support of staff from the school, Winnipeg Aboriginal Sport Achievement Centre, and volunteers from the local seniors group, more than 300 students took part in the 3 km run through Point Douglas on June 14.

The event was designed to inspire kids to get involved in positive activities in their community. It was also an opportunity to demonstrate how the community can come together to life a little brighter in Point Douglas.
WASAC has been a driving force in that effort.

Since its inception in 1999, the Winnipeg Aboriginal Sport Achievement Centre opened its doors as a small non-profit organization with 2 coaches, 4 leaders and 40 children. Now WASAC is helping to remove barriers for thousands of children annually and is Canada’s largest employer for Aboriginal children and youth.

The Winnipeg Police Service was proud to join these kids for a great run.

Congratulations to everyone involved.
