Last week I brought him along to a Community Gym event run by Tangerine Bank. It was to be a morning of basketball drills. Boo told me that basketball is NOT his favourite sport, but he was still excited for the event. For the record, Boo is not an athlete. And I suspect he never will be. His talents lie elsewhere (music, science, drawing). But he still loves to play sports and get active with his peers. Even though he knows he's not the best, and he struggles to keep up, he always tries his hardest and has a good time. I love that determination, and I think it fits well with Tangerine Bank's message of empowering and encouraging our youth, building self-confidence and giving them the skills to succeed at whatever they do.

I took a lot of pictures and video while we were there. Here's just a little montage of some of the day's fun -
