Holistic Model & Goal Setting

Students will be introduced to Terry Fox’s story as an athlete — his young life playing sports and his big goal of a cross-Canada run to raise money for cancer research and awareness. Students will explore how a holistic approach to well-being and health could support athletes and others in working towards small and big goals. Students will then be encouraged to create their own goals through a holistic well-being lens.
