The Urgent Need to Address Physical Inactivity

Today is International Day of Sport for Development and Peace, an occasion marked every year to promote healthy lifestyles and when some of the world’s leading sportspeople work together with communities to bring sporting opportunities to enrich lives, particularly children. So we reached out to Bruce Kidd, former Olympic athlete and a member of Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame and the Canadian Olympic Hall of Fame. His latest book, A Runner’s Journey, comes out later this year from Aevo-UTP. In this post, Kidd looks at how we can all come together to revitalize physical education, physical activity, and community sport in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
