Uma, Kamila, Kimaya and Sasha

October 2023

Meet our October profiles, Uma, her two granddaughters Kamila and Kimaya, and their mom Sasha! As long-standing members, the family started to use the CGC when the girls were little and visited Child Minding. Now in Grades 1 and 5, the girls are a common sight in the After School Program and on the playground, but can also be found racing on the Track with their mom, or making a splash in the pool with their Nanny Uma! For the family, the Centre is more than just a place to be healthy and active, but also a place where fitness and family come together to create life-long memories.

"It's important for us to stay active so that we can keep up with the younger kids and continue making memories together."
