Sports Day in Canada moves Niagara residents

Niagara Falls takes part in third annual Sports Day in Canada

To mark this year’s Sports Day in Canada, a national celebration of sport, from grassroots to high‐performance levels, The City of Niagara Falls is hosting a number of events throughout the city including a hockey tournament, bike ride, trail running and more.

“Sport can be a powerful and positive influence in our communities,” says Kelly Murumets, President and CEO of ParticipACTION, the national voice of physical activity and sport participation in Canada. “Sports Day in Canada is a great opportunity for families and kids of all ages to celebrate their favourite sport or try their hand at something new – it’s all part of finding fun, easy ways to live a healthier, more active lifestyle.”

Sports Day in Canada, on September 29, demonstrates that sport has the power to build community, fortify national spirit and promote healthy, active living.

I am excited to be part of Sports Day in Canada. The city of City of Niagara Falls has a long tradition of supporting its local teams and clubs. Sport is great for our community and is something we can all get behind.

On September 29, Gord Singleton and I will be leading a bike ride along the Niagara Falls Olympic Trail with Niagara riders representing local clubs and race teams. The ride will be part of CBC's televised compelling television event airing on CBC Sports. The Sports Day in Canada on CBC broadcast will profile standout community events from across Canada that embody the Sports Day experience, unified by award-winning national sports anchor, Scott Russell. The broadcast will share from these communities the stories, the passion and the power of sport with Canadians. The broadcast will include local community stories, live hits from local events, interviews with key personalities and engaging discussions.

“When sport is focused on fairness, excellence, inclusion and fun, it can reduce crime, stimulate the economy and teach important life lessons,” says Karri Dawson, Director of True Sport Operations.

We are very fortunate to be able to enjoy the amenities of a very active community here in the Niagara Region. Check out your local Sports Day activities and get in the game!
