Chantal Dagostino Receives Human Kinetic Exceptional Alumni Award

June 2, 8 AM · Laurentian University

As you know i am a very private person, but this is something i had to share with all of you.

A couple of weeks ago I got notification that I had to be at Laurentian University on June 5th for the Physical Education Graduation. When I got there, I found out that I had to suit up and wear a gown. To find out after that I was going to be part of the procession going on the stage with all the Physical Education Professors, who taught me long ago. it was such an amazing feeling from the beginning.

Not knowing what was waiting for me, I had the pleasure to see all graduates from this program coming one by one accepting their degree! I was so pleased to see so many familiar faces who graduated from St. Charles College.

Then after all of the Graduates received their degree, came the part where I was called to go and accept the Human Kinetic Exceptional Alumni Award for the following reasons.

1- For my Leadership into the coordination of the largest Northern Ontario Program called FITSPIRIT that aims to get school girls moving, to help them get better self esteem , and to show them how to have fun with friends. Over the past 5 years I have seen this program expanding from 10 schools to close to 30 schools in Northern Ontario ( from North Bay to Sault Ste-Marie and as far as Marathon).

2- For my contribution to our Northern community through the creation of the GIRLS RUN SUDBURY also 5 years ago that offers opportunity to all females to participate in a day filled with lots of energy, yoga, zumba and of course the walk/run/race of 3 distances - 2.5 k, 5 k, 10 k , which participants can do with their friends, or as a mother-daughter team. We have seen this event grow from 100 participants to be a sold out event with over 500 participants this year. I am anticipating that next year this event will continue to grow.

After receiving such an award, I was in shock, and I was very honored to have received this incredible mention. I am so grateful, words can not describe this amazing feeling. From the bottom of my heart this is something I can say - I made a difference as a high school teacher for our Northern community.

After some reflection, I came up with few more ideas to help our community in getting moving and having fun! For those who have read it through, like the Girls Run Sudbury page, and the Girls Run Sudbury Running Group on Facebook to receive more details about what is coming soon!
