REGIONAL DIRECTOR: STEVE
My name is Steve Lerette and I am originally from St. John NB but have spent all of my “school" years in Halifax. Cathy and I have been married for 30 years and we have three grown children. All of our kids are in the “sports world”. The youngest works at Lakehead university in Thunder Bay Ontario in the gym, the middle child is a Physiotherapist at a sports med. clinic and the oldest is a sports administrator with several sports governing bodies. I am a retired Physical Education teacher where I taught for 32 years with the Halifax Regional School Board.
I am the new regional director for Start2Finish in Nova Scotia. We currently have four schools in the Halifax Dartmouth area with a new school in Dartmouth joining us in January 2018. Our Start2 Finish program has one component called the "Running and Reading club” . As a retired educator this aspect is near and dear to me. Growing up in a part of town that services two of our Start2Finish schools I know first hand the benefits and value of the program to our students and communities. These areas of our cities have schools and communities that face challenges that the Start2Finish and Running and Reading programs address on a personal and very meaningful way.
If you are a person or group or organization who might be interested in helping our Start2Finish programs in the North end of Dartmouth, North End Halifax or the Spryfield area, with your time, your skills or of course your financial support, please contact us and we will reach out to you as soon as we can.
