ROLLING WITH VAN  and  #GETKIDSOUT

Rolling with Van started in 2017 when I decided to drive across Canada with my kids, to explore the geography of our country. We spent 64 days on the road, racking up more than 14000 km. 

Following our road trip, the kids and I launched Get Kids Out (#getkidsout) - a fun platform to encourage kids to get outside, appreciate their surroundings, and promote active living. The kids continue to vlog and post short videos to share across social media platforms which you can explore further with this link: #getkidsout.  


Active Transportation and #getkidsout

#getkidsout has been working with Ever Active Schools to spread the word on the benefits of active transportation. You can find more videos on Active School Travel under the #getkidsout tab. Are you wondering what we mean when we’re referring to active transport? Look no further, Sophie has some answers:

The #getkidsout Ambassadors have been busy as bees putting together some sound bites in a collaborative effort with Ever Active Schools and Shape Alberta. Their latest vlog post brings all the sound bites in one spot for easy viewing and sharing. They’ve got lots of tips on walking and wheeling to school!

I want to leave you with one, very important message, Moms, Dads, teachers, principals, kids...you don’t have to be sporty to be active!
