Time to 'Choose Your Own Activity Adventure'!
Be Active Every Day is an annual Doctors of BC initiative to help kids be more active and make healthy choices. In partnership with their local elementary school, doctors across BC coordinate a month-long challenge to kids.
The Challenge begins the week of Monday October 1st with a school visit and ends with follow up visit the final week of October. Last year more than 5,800 students in 66 schools were challenged by 48 doctors and resident doctors with the help of nurse practitioners, divisions, and athletes across the province!
With doctors leading students through the activity challenge, kids can learn about the importance of good health, nutrition, and fitness from a medical perspective. The goal is to make a lasting impact on children and help them turn healthy choices into healthy habits.
What grades are targeted, typically?
BAED is targeted at kids aged 5-11 years old - Kindergarten to Gr 6/7.
What if we have a split class, or kids older than 11?
We understand that schools have split classes and sometimes there are children older than 11. While Be Active Every Day is targeted at kids age 5-11, it is not exclusively for this group. Children in split classes are welcome to join in the fun!
How many kids/classes should I work with?
You are free to work with as many kids as suits your schedule and you are comfortable with. Some doctors work with a single class, while others work with entire schools. The number of kids participating at a school ranged from 20 to 400+.
What do I say?
Doctors of BC will provide you with an event package that includes speaking notes for you to work with.
Is it possible to find out if one’s local school already has a participating doctor, or to find out if they’ve done the program previously?
