On this week’s show, we spoke with Claudine Labelle, Founder and President @ FitSpirit. Claudine is a social entrepreneur and former elite athlete who founded FitSpirit to encourage a generation of teenage girls to take responsibility for their own health and wellbeing. With the support of prominent partners, she is spearheading far-sighted efforts to promote physical activity and healthy eating. The impact has been major: to date, FitSpirit has reached more than 150,000 young women in Quebec and Ontario. In addition to achieving success for FitSpirit, Claudine’s hard work and energy have earned her numerous awards and recognition from her peers in the philanthropic and social enterprise communities.
On the show, we spoke about:
- Finding her passion to help teenage girls
- Being a competitor in the cycling world
- Her non-profit’s mission and the impact they create
- How they partner with the corporate world
It was the first time I met Claudine and she was a true inspiration. She approaches her non-profit like a business and shared some great insights.
