ROLL WITH VAN  and  #GETKIDSOUT

Rolling with Van started in 2017 when Van decided to drive across Canada with her kids, to explore the geography of their country. They spent 64 days on the road, racking up more than 14 000 km. 

Following their road trip, Van and her kids 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.

Sophie knows that there are many physical health benefits to walking to school, but she also reminds us of the mental health benefits associated with walking as a mode of active transport.

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!

A Review of the bike signals with Ben

In this video, Ben reminds us that in Calgary, it’s legal for kids to ride on sidewalks, but that’s not the case everywhere. Get informed on what your municipal bylaw says, and don’t forget to practice your hand signals in areas with little to no traffic.

This soundbite is part of a collection prepared for Ever Active Schools and Shape Alberta.


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!
— #getkidsout Ambassador Sophie, Grade 6.

You don’t want to miss Sophie’s award winning video as she delivers her very important message. Sophie advocates for inclusive and quality Phys. Ed programs and hopes to raise awareness about active living.

Great job Sophie!!
