The goal of this initiative is to support physical activity in youth by providing them with a culturally appropriate challenge that builds pride, a sense of accomplishment, and a feeling of success.

THE NISKA INITIATIVE

Niska supports local organizations in the planning and development of physical activities and sports – initiation, recreation, competition, or excellence. The New Pathways Foundation wants to provide opportunities for First Nations youth to explore various activities and eventually pursue their journey within a specific sport.

THE FOX CHALLENGE

The Fox Challenge is made possible thanks to the support of the New Pathways Foundation’s Niska project.It is an untimed race organized by and for First Nations where participants try to become Foxes!

 
How?
By walking, running, or snowshoeing a 2 km distance. The Foxes are then rewarded with a one-of-a-kind medal bearing the mention of the Fox in all the Aboriginal languages of Quebec.
 
Already a Fox?
The challenge takes on its full meaning after you have earned the title of Fox! Once the 2 km challenge is completed, you have the option to move on to the next challenge. There are currently 4 km and 6 km challenges are available, and more will be added over time.

Be ready!
