About the Virtual beKIND Mindfitness Triathlon (Fundraiser for mental health & wellness beKIND school programs)
It’s the virtual event of 2021! We’re going big, big, big this year. It’s fun, It’s unique. It’s the first of it’s kind in Canada and as far as we know in the World. Because of Covid we could not safely run this annual event with everyone in person so we came up with another creative way we could all participate Together Apart.
We’ve teamed up with the Running Room to make this a National Event and Bliss YogaSpa, voted the #1 yoga studio in Edmonton, who will be donating a free online yoga class with every registration. This event is open to everyone of all ages and abilities. It’s about being KIND, having fun and moving your body with the focus on 3 key areas: body, mind and heart. Proceeds go to mental health and wellness beKIND school programs.
3 Parts make up the Virtual beKIND Mindfitness Triathlon. It’s an ongoing event that we all do at our own pace (Together Apart) and you have until Saturday November 13 (World KINDness Day) to complete your fitness activity, yoga class & the 40 Day beKIND Mindfulness Challenge. On November 13 we will email you your Virtual beKIND Mindfitness Triathlon Certificate.

There’s often a story behind our actions and this is my story…one I rarely share or talk about.
You never know what someone is going through so take time to beKIND
I like a happy ending and I’ve always been someone who tries to focus on the positive or tries to turn a negative situation into a positive situation. You will rarely hear me talk about what’s behind what I do or what fuels me to do what I do but know there is a reason…in fact many reasons. In short it is the personal interactions with others, their stories and their struggles that have had such a profound impact on me and fuelled me to develop beKIND Mindfulness Programs, Trainings and Kits for over 2000 school teachers, parents, psychologists and counsellors across Alberta, to teach over 25 000 kids, teens and adults about KINDness, Mindfulness & Meditation, to launch the first ever in Canada beKIND Mindfitness Triathlons that thousands have participated in and to also create a beKIND Mindfulness Movement (say or do something KIND for somebody every day) that has spread across Canada, into the USA, Europe, South America and Asia.
When I was a K-12 school teacher I heard and saw more than I could have ever imagined. To the kid who felt left out that I saw sitting alone during recess or lunch with no friends, the 7 year old boy that was beaten and locked in a closet yet somehow made it to school once in awhile, the teen that was depressed and anxious who struggled to get out of bed every day and rarely left their house, the 9 year old girl that was bullied so badly she killed herself to the parent that thanks me every time I see them and says if it wasn’t for you my child would not be alive. I hear you and my actions speak louder than my words.
So with this in mind I hope you can join our Viritual beKIND Mindfitness Triathlon (May 21-November 13, 2021) to raise awareness and funds for mental health and wellness beKIND school programs. Donations are also accepted (click on the links below or e-transfers are also accepted). I know sometimes people feel awkward if they can’t give $100 or more so often end up giving nothing. Please know any donation helps…even $10.00 makes a difference.
