She is currently the head coach of the Mount Saint Vincent University women’s soccer program, where she also played five years as a varsity athlete while pursuing her Bachelor of Public Relations. She previously held the position of Public Relations and Marketing Coordinator at Soccer Nova Scotia. In the spring of 2018, Danielle started her Masters of Professional Communication at Royal Roads University where she is working on her thesis exploring topics in leadership, sport and gender. She is a long-time volunteer with the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport as a True Sport Champion and believes that good sport can make a great difference.
“I’m really excited to be joining the Kids Run Club team and the Doctors Nova Scotia Healthy Tomorrow Foundation,” says Cyr. “There are so many important benefits physical activity provides young people. I am looking forward to continuing the great work Kids Run Club has done inspiring Nova Scotia’s youth to sit less and move more.”
Danielle will be working to continue to spread the message about Kids Run Club across the province and share all of the amazing success stories of participants and coaches. She will also be looking to create and maintain partnerships with champions and advocates in the community to help provide more Nova Scotian kids with the opportunity to fall in love with running and healthy living. Welcome to the team Danielle!
