Our Mission

The goal of Kingston Gets Active is to promote, encourage, and support citizens to be active on a regular basis.

Kingston Gets Active is a community-wide initiative that raises awareness of the benefits of physical activity and helps to create and enhance opportunities that will enable our residents to be physically active on a regular basis.

KGA exists for the purpose of increasing the number of physically active citizens in Kingston. KGA works actively:

  1. To build community capacity;
  2. To link resources, events and opportunities;
  3. To reduce barriers to individual behavioural change;
  4. To create supportive environments in which our citizens learn, commute, work and play.

KGA addresses the need for a multi-level approach by implementing action plans that target various areas of community life such as educational and promotional activities; social marketing and communication; and infrastructure and public policy strategies.

Together, we can make the active choice the easy choice!

Thank you to our funders!
