As the Health Ambassador for Chicken Farmers of Canada, I am super excited to tell you all that Swimming Canada has announced that Chicken Canada has officially been named the “the official protein of swimming in Canada.”
Swimming Canada is the national governing body of competitive swimming. They encourage Canadians to embrace an active lifestyle of swimming, sport, fitness and health. The federation comprises 75,000 members and 400 swim clubs across the country.
“By naming fresh Canadian chicken ‘the official protein of swimming in Canada,’ this partnership showcases a spirit of cooperation between two organizations that believe in promoting healthy lifestyles,” said Chris Wilson, Director of Marketing & Events at Swimming Canada.
When we think of healthy living, swimming is an activity which comes to mind. Swimming is a low-impact, cardiovascular exercise which almost anyone can participate in, no matter their physical abilities. Chicken is also a key in healthy living, it’s a valuable ingredient in a well-blanced diet which is essential to healthy living.
As a mother with physical disabilities, swimming is the one activity I can comfortably participate in with my children. From May – September we can be found in our backyard pool or enjoy time swimming in the lake in Muskoka. The number of times we’ve enjoyed BBQ chicken after a day of swimming is too high to count, the two go together for our family.
Swimming Canada and Chicken Farmers working to promote healthy living & water safety.
