Active Living Grants
The Alive to Strive Kidney Fitness Project operates an active living grant program for fitness and weight loss programs for those living with chronic kidney disease. Our goal is to help improve the health and well-being of individuals living with chronic kidney disease.
100% Volunteers, 100% Local
The Alive to Strive Kidney Fitness Project operates without a single paid staff. This means that all of the contributions from our annual Alive to Strive Race, through sponsors and race registrations, go towards operating the Alive to Strive Active Living grant program.
Our grant program focuses on offering front line services to people living with chronic kidney disease that are being followed at the Ottawa Hospital.
Making a difference, one recipient at a time
Our Active Living Grant Program offers assistance in three different formats.
Personalized Training Grant
Recipients of personalized training grants can receive a free membership to a local gym of their choice. Personal training sessions are also available for individuals that need to build knowledge and confidence to achieve their goals of living an active lifestyle.
Adaptive Group Classes
Group Classes started this fall! They are for 6-10 participants per class. Classes are offered twice a week, 1 hour class for 6 weeks by Top Shape Fitness. It is about bringing individuals together that share similar experiences and to motivate each other in a positive and comfortable environment, adapted to individuals living with chronic kidney disease.
Active Living Assistance Grant
Recipients of the Active Living Assistance Grants are individuals that require financial assistance in order to participate in a healthy lifestyle activity or sport of their choice. Example of activities could be taking part in a baseball league, dance group, bowling league, or even participating weekly in a local senior’s center sand bag activity. Anything to keep active!
