A GOLD-en story...

Just a really quick entry today... In case you were doubting if kids are being inspired by what we're seeing transpire out in Vancouver, here's a nice experience I had today that brought a smile to my face.

I was running an after school program and the kids were split up into two teams. When we make teams, I always like to have the kids come up with a creative team name to be used the rest of that session. Each team had 10 seconds to come up with a name that they all agreed with and was chosen in a fair way.

One team took a long time to come up with something, electing instead to be named by me (I named them Silly Monkeys, but I digress). The other team though, chatted for only 3 seconds, turned to me, and shouted with loud enthusiasm "OK we have our team name!" What did they name themselves?

The Bilodeau's.

Go Canada Go! We're all watching and cheering you on...

Olympics 2010 - Go Canada!

posted by: Mitch Zeltzer

The Olympics are finally upon us!

It's time to get hyped up, so get your flags ready, your face paint prepared, and your spirit in full gear, in order to show your colours and support our country's atheletes.  Be sure to follow the olympics at http://www.vancouver2010.com/

On Friday night, Feb. 12, 2010, the opening ceremonies will begin and the Olympic Flame will finally light the Olympic Cauldron in Vancouver.  After over 100 days and travelling 45,000km!!!

We, at Dynamix, are proud to have had the opportunity to play a role in the Olympic Torch Relay.  As many of you already know, Dynamix had been given the privelege of bearing the olympic torch as it passed through Montreal. Coca Cola and RBC selected Dynamix for its positive impact on society and its youth.

So, to get you in the Olympic spirit, we've posted a fun video that documents Allison's experience carrying the torch for Dynamix.  Enjoy!
