From participACTION:Dear Colleague:

We need your help in getting Canadians inspired to get moving!! As you know, we recently launched our latest national awareness campaign, "Get Inspired, Get Moving."

The English and French television commercials, airing nationally until March 2009, feature a montage of Canadian icons including Donovan Bailey, Farley Flex, Rick Hansen, Mary Walsh, Sebastien Benoît, Pierre Boivin, Geneviève Borne, Virginie Coossa, and Bruny Surin. The icons encourage Canadians to live a more active life and to visit and submit their own stories about how becoming more active has improved their lives. Our new "Wall of Inspiration" corkboard on our website allows people to submit their own narrative along with pictures and videos. Our plan is to include a selection of stories from the Wall of Inspiration in a series of commercials in 2009.

Since our launch, we've received some really great stories, and the number of submissions continues to grow. However, *we would like to populate our "Wall of Inspiration" with personal stories of Canadians from your network.* We invite you to please spread the word and to ask your network to spread the word, so that we can reach as many Canadians as possible. Through the sharing of personal stories, we hope to celebrate Canadians who are moving more, while inspiring others to do the same.

Thank you in advance for your support!

Warmest regards,


*Marianne Bernardo*
