Chris Paulson and Rachelle van Zanten cooperated with Spirit North six years ago
On Dec. 21, Spirit North visited Morris Williams Elementary School to teach the students about skiing.
Spirit North is a non-profit organization that raises funds to support sports and physical well-being for Indigenous youth. They visit various schools in the community to introduce kids to their sports programs, one of which is skiing.
Spirit North also teaches other sports programs such as cross-country running, mountain biking, canoeing, and land-based games and activities.
Chris Paulson, who is the project leader and ski coordinator for Spirit North in Burns Lake, believes that positive sports experiences can change children’s lives in a significant way.
