Exercise is Medicine Canada @ Sault College is launching with some great activities and events in 2015!
We are collaborating with our on campus doctor and mental health hub to educate these professionals on the physical activity referral process using the EIMC exercise prescription and referral pads.
We are working to launch an exercise buddy program by collecting names to determine interest in two categories:
1. People who would be more comfortable joining our campus fitness facility if they had someone who could help them in the gym; and
2. Experienced gym users interested in volunteering to help a fellow student in the gym.
If we find enough interest we will partner people up based on exercise interests and help encourage people to get to know our campus fitness facility!
Our first club fundraising event will be The Ugly Christmas Sweater Dodgeball Tournament!! We are recruiting individual players and teams (emphasizing program specific teams) from across campus to participate in a fun afternoon of dodgeball, but they must be wearing their best Christmas costume or ugliest Christmas sweater!
Finally we are campaigning around campus to raise awareness about our club and the benefits we can offer.
