In April, our 2nd year Fitness and Health promotion students organized a successful 5K run as part of their Special Events class. From logistics to sponsorship and administration, the students took care of every detail, including the choice of charity. This year, they chose to donate all proceeds to Sophie’s Run, a run taking place from Humber College to Ottawa to raise awareness of colorectal cancer, founded by Hospitality faculty member Nicole Chuchmach. The 5K run also became the first leg of Sophie’s Run for Nicole and her supporters.
Our Fitness & Health Promotion students were challenged at their leadership excursion to Alpha Obstacle Toronto (Myodetox Performance Centre). They received hands on experience with obstacle courses and how to create/lead them, which is on-trend in the Fitness industry. The students worked closely with Alpha Obstacle co-founder, Jesse Bruce who is a graduate of the Kinesiology degree program with Guelph-Humber.
