CCB HEALTH AND FITNESS PROGRAM; Educate and Empower
The Canadian council of the Blind Health & fitness program aims to engage, educate and empower people who are blind or visually impaired to live an active and healthy lifestyle. the program was started by Ryan Van Praet, a Registered Kinesiologist, competitive curler, paratriathelite and experienced healthcare professional who just happens to have Retinitis Pigmentosa. Originally called the Trust Your Buddy Program, its new name reflects its direction and nature.
This program is for every CCB member from coast to coast, offering a free, national resource for everyone, at any fitness level and visual impairment, who wants to lead a life full of physical activity and wellbeing. Information and content is delivered through podcasts, blog posts, youtube videos, email group lists, twitter, facebook and one-on-one telephone coaching; your questions are what drives us!
