"What a wonderful opportunity it has been to share the positive message of active living for personal and environmental health with so many engaged participants this year! I have truly enjoyed facilitating experiential learning that inspires, engages and promotes personal and community action in so many important areas of our lives. As a former gymnast who maintains a healthy active lifestyle, I am encouraged by what I see amongst young people in schools, sport clubs, camps and leadership programs wanting to be active, make good decisions and lead sustainably happy lives. I have never felt more engaged and committed to advocating for better environmental and community health. Thank you to CAC and all of its funders for making this vitally important and timely work possible."

“Now that Thomas and I are both retired athletes, we are pumped to be able to put more personal energy into our Clean Air Champions Lifestyle. We realize that the daily choices we make and the way we choose to live can promote positive change in our community. The small things are really the big things. We live and share our small house, we are bike focused family for the earth and our pleasure, we grow our own food to lessen our reliance on food that has to be shipped great distances and we do the cloth diapers for our children. We install the same ideals for our business like purchasing green power and having complimentary town bikes for our guests. The earth only has so much and we want to share.”

“I love doing this work - I learn a lot and feel wonderful carrying the messages of personal responsibility for our bodies and minds as well as our earth.”
