Two northeast Winnipeg students were recently recognized for their commitment to fitness.

Miles Macdonell’s Kylie Bard and River East’s Janelle Chilton received the Premier’s Healthy Living Award for Youth on June 14.

Bard, a multisport athlete who will begin attending the University of Manitoba in the hopes of entering the faculty of kinesiology in the fall, was recognized in the active living category for the award.

In addition to keeping herself moving, the 18-year-old also encourages others to do the same, as she served as an assistant coach for the Robert Andrews School Grade 9 girls’ basketball team this past season, helping guide the  East St. Paul team to the league final.

"It was really good to go back to the school that I went to and encourage the girls to play a sport that I love," Bard said. "They would listen to me, but we could have fun at the same time."

Bard currently plans to continue helping with the team next season, continuing in her role of demonstrating drills and answering player questions.

As well, Bard participated in this year’s Run With Porter, volunteers annually at the MS Walk, and helped to organize intramural events at her school.

In addition to basketball, Bard runs track and cross-country, and also plays field hockey for the Buckeyes. She also runs track for the Stride Ahead Tough Track team, which trains at the U of M, where she caught the eye of Bisons track coach Claude Berube. She will represent the school next year.

Chilton, who is also in Grade 12, could not be reached by press time.
