The focus of the event this year is centred on youth health and wellbeing. The event kicks off with a motivational speaker on the effects of addictions followed by a catered lunch and the recognition awards ceremony. The Health and Wellness Trade show will feature active living demonstrations, workshops, and a chance to receive a complimentary paint ball pass.

A highlight of the event is the Winds of Change Recognition Awards Ceremony. Seven awards will be presented during lunch to individuals and organizations that contribute to our collective goal of a healthy and safe environment for our children and families. The seven awards are divided into four categories: The North Wind – Promoting Healthy Lifestyle Choices; The South Wind – Increasing Awareness; The East Wind – Improving Services; and The West Wind – Community Leadership and Responsibility.”
