We are Barb and Wolfgang Guembel and would like to formalize our charity work with the incorporation of Aktiv Kids.  We are the founders of Aktiv Life Inc.  We are teachers, coaches, athletes, parents, and we are 'aktiv for life'.

The objective is to raise $7000 as startup capital before Saturday October 4.  These funds will formally launch our charity as a legal charitable non-profit operating in Ontario and will provide our first scholarship awards.

Our long term vision is to drive proceeds from events that Aktiv Life Inc. (AktivLife.ca) produces each year, together with individual fundraising, to provide opportunities for youth in Ontario to get and stay active.  We strive to promote lifestyles that are healthy and sustainable. 

Our goal deliverables to youth each year include:

  •    4 x $1000 academic scholarships awarded at the annual Oktoberfest Half Marathon (one to each winning male and female in high school and university category),
  •    Offer scholarship/paid spots at the yearly Aktiv Racing Summer Kids Triathlon Camp,
  •    Provide authentic and appropriate running footwear to youth who show dedication in attendance and participation on local school cross country running teams, 
  •    Loan youth appropriate triathlon-specific bicycles with required accessories to youth for a triathlon season,
  •    Other unique opportunities to help foster and sustain active lifestyles for youth,

 

Our startup fundraising goal of $7000 is to be used as such:

  •    4 x $1000 scholarships for the first annual Oktoberfest Half Marathon, October 4, 2014,
  •    $1000 to legally incorporate Aktiv Kids as Aktiv Kids Inc., a registered charity, in Ontario,
  •    $1500 for a first distribution of running shoes to youth this Fall,
  •    $500 for initial communication materials, web page, etc.

 

If you know a child, student or young adult who has the right attitude and may only be missing appropriate equipment or apparel, or may not have the opportunity, then you know a child that Aktiv Kids is trying to reach. 

If you think triathlon, competitive swimming, cycling, or running are great lifetime sports for people of all ages, then a small donation of even $1 can help give incredible opportunities to those who are not as fortunate as all of us who experience the love of endurance sport as we do.
