Trish Stratus joins over a thousand organizations and opens up her yoga studio to her community for Sports Day in Canada, a national celebration of sport at all levels.
In the week leading up to September 29, a blitz of Sport Day events including community-wide festivals, try-it days, open houses, games, competitions, meet-and-greets, tournaments, fun runs, spectator events and pep rallies will be held across Canada by organizations, schools, teams and towns.
As a performer for one of the largest sports entertainment companies in the world, Stratus knows first-hand that the power of sport is not limited to just what it can do for us as individuals. For over a decade, along with her fellow WWE athletes, spreading the message that sport can be a powerful and positive influence in our communities and amongst our youth is a top priority.

shows how good sport can be used intentionally to positively influence a wide range of societal goals, including child and youth development, crime prevention, education, social inclusion and economic and environmental sustainability.
