After graduation, many former students come across opportunities that are really once in a lifetime and can change not only the way they view the world, but make a difference too. This is such the case for Jordan Morin, as he has now signed up to participate in the cross country bike tour with the Unleash Your Potential team.
Morin graduated from Grandview School in 2010. He then enrolled in a Bachelor of Science Degree at the University of Saskatchewan and finished in 2015, with a major in physiology and pharmacology and a minor in entrepreneurship. Now at 24 years of age, this past school year, Morin completed his first year of chiropractic college at Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto.
“Ever since high school I have been very involved with volunteering,” explained Morin. “With most of my time dedicated to MADD and helping first year students as a Peer Mentor with the University Learning Center at U of S. I have a passion for sport, healthy living and helping others and I feel like my past experiences have prepared me for the 2017 Unleash Your Potential tour.”
Morin was introduced to Unleash Your Potential in the fall of 2015, when the previous team was recruiting for the first two members for the 2017 team. They came to his class and showed a video of their experience. To Morin, it seemed like the team had a blast, but more importantly, it seemed like a great cause.
Unleash Your Potential is a National Health and Wellness Campaign with a mission to motivate, inspire and educate Canadian youth to get active and live healthier lives. It is a student-run initiative that has run every two years since 2005. Each team is made up of four chiropractic students from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College.
“I knew as soon as I saw the previous team’s recruitment video that I would love to do this,” noted Morin. “I knew it would be right up my alley; not only is it a challenge and an adventure, but a great way to experience Canada and an opportunity to inspire youth and make a positive impact on their lives.”
During the trip, the Unleash Your Potential team will be stopping at schools, youth groups, camps, and chiropractic clinics to give presentations that will hopefully empower youth to make healthy choices. “It’s our belief that by educating and inspiring youth on healthy habits, we can help create changes that will gear Canada’s youth towards a healthier future,” stated Morin.
Morin and Jared Barrieau have started their own personal training programs for the summer. “Personally, I have been doing plenty of circuit training and plyometric training,” commented Morin. “Focusing on
