You’re never too young to get active.

That was the message on Monday as 235 local students from Ecole St. Margaret, Sacred Heart and Palliser Heights schools participated in Jumpstart Games at 15 Wing Moose Jaw. Jumpstart is a national charity helping kids ages four to 18 from families in need to participate in physical activities. Students were joined by Gord Miller, TSN sportscaster, Brayden Schennn, Saskatoon-born NHL centre with the Philadelphia Flyers, and Meaghan Mikkelson, two-time Olympic hockey gold medalist.

“Lives are so busy now. People are so busy and it’s so easy to not be active, but the message of how great it is to be active needs to get out,” said Miller.
