Reaching for the Top

The Sandbox Project was founded by Dr. Kellie Leitch to respond to the startling research findings of her report, Reaching for the Top: A Report by the Advisor on Healthy Children and Youth, conducted on behalf of the Government of Canada in 2007/2008. 

After an exhaustive research period which took Dr. Leitch to all provinces and territories, she discovered that Canada is slipping further behind its peer countries when it comes to key health indicators for children and youth. The Sandbox Project (originally called the Kids' Health Foundation) was designed to effect change in a collaborative manner with stakeholders who can help improve the lives of children and youth.
