Junior Leafs Get Into WOW

Late last month, six Nelson Junior Leafs players promoted a South Nelson Elementary School initiative

Late last month, six Nelson Junior Leafs players promoted a South Nelson Elementary School initiative — WOW, Walk or Wheel on Wednesday. These players were ambassadors of the program greeting students walking to school, and placing their names in for a draw for NDCC facility passes (kindly donated by the NDCC). WOW is a school-based initiative, supported by Interior Health and South Nelson parents. It encourages students and their families to make an extra effort every Wednesday to walk or wheel to school, or part of the way, by parking a few blocks away from school. Through WOW, South Nelson is trying to promote healthy lifestyles, pedestrian safety, and reduce traffic congestion near the school. Each month there is a fun WOW theme which aims to help make walking or wheeling to school a bit easier and more fun. On this Wednesday it was “meet a Leaf/wear your jersey” Wednesday.
