|Flex Night Inc. now has a Toronto chapter|
|Sunday, 03 June 2012 20:59|
FLEX Night Inc., legally established in Guyana in February of this year, has now formed its second overseas chapter – Friends of Flex Night – Toronto.
The launching of that entity took place last Saturday May 26 in the Academic Complex of Vaughn Estate on the Grounds of the Sunnybrook Hospital , one week after the Southwest Florida chapter was launched in Fort Myers , Florida .
The event began with a lunch hosted by Dr. Alden Chesney, formerly of Fitness Paradise Gym in Georgetown and now working as hemato-pathologist at Sunnybrook Hospital and assistant Professor at the University of Toronto
Dr. Chesney gave the Welcome to the participants followed by the main presentation made by Donald Sinclair, Managing Director of Flex Night Inc.
Each participant then identified and shared a personal health and fitness goal which he/she would like to realize by August 31, 2012. This was followed by a general feedback and discussion session that was moderated by Yale Holder, former President of the GABBFF, and now computer engineer in Toronto .
The Toronto chapter agreed to the following activities in support of the Flex Night event:
1. That an annual minimum financial contribution would be made to the Flex Night International and Health & Fitness Expo event.
2. That a female athlete would be identified to participate in the Flex Night International event, representing the Toronto chapter.
3. That the Toronto chapter would be responsible for a booth at the Health & Fitness Expo under the theme ‘Women in Health and Fitness.’ This booth would specifically address a wide range of issues relevant to health and fitness as may be applicable to women of all age groups.
4. That the Toronto chapter would collaborate with Flex Night Inc. in efforts to establish, as a pilot project in Guyana , an open-air community exercise space that would consist of basic, stationary exercise equipment to which members of the public would have free access.
5. That the Toronto chapter would support Flex Night Inc. in efforts to strengthen the Physical Education component of the school curriculum.
6. That through face to face as well as electronic interaction, the group would relate as a mutual support group to help in the attainment and sustaining of optimum health and fitness.
The Chapter holds its next meeting on Saturday August 25 in Sunnybrook Park where members will report on progress made towards the realisation of their health and fitness goals and engage in healthy outdoor physical activity.
