Esso Kids Heart Beat Spirit Award
Learning lifestyle habits starts in our youth. As such, it is extremely
important to get kids to participate in activities which can form
the foundation for habitual exercise in their adult years. Heart
Beat is very fortunate to have the Imperial Oil Foundation support
this important idea by donating funds to youth groups (age 16 and
less) who participate at Heart Beat. Awards of $1250, $750 and $500
will be given to the top three non-profit youth groups as calculated
by the following formula:
# of kids participating + (% of total group/3)
Kids need to indicate their Esso Spirit Award group on their entry
form and an organizer must register the group by phoning 432-6696
before June 9.
BONUS: The first 10 groups to register will get $50 just for participating
Regular physical activity is a key component of a healthy lifestyle.
