Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground. Let their spirit ignite a fire within you to leave this world better than when you found it…

Find your Fit Activity of the Day: Crevasse Crossing
Objective: To get students moving and thinking; to get them to come up with strategies on how to cross over a separation in the floor which depicts the crevasses you will encounter on Mount Logan. To do this they must get one person at a time across the “crevasse”, while getting all the equipment to the other side as well.
Materials Needed: Per group; 2 cones, 1 mat, 1 rope, 1 hockey stick, 1 ball, 1 bean bag.
The object of the game is for each team to get across the crevasse without falling into it. Also you have to get all your equipment across the crevasse. If any part of the students body touches the space between the cones (known as the crevasse), they have to drop what equipment they have and return to the starting shore. Students have to figure out how to use the equipment to cross the crevasse. The fun part is once one or two students get across they have to send it back to the other side somehow. Many times they will get stuck and have to rescued by another student on another piece of equipment. It forces the students to work strategically together as a group.
