Are you a #FUNdraisingChaser?

By GoodLife Kids on 29/04/2016

When you pledge your Chase to GoodLife Kids Foundation, you remove barriers that prevent kids with autism from being able to play.

Last year, Chasers made it possible for over 230 kids with autism to participate in physical activities that they would usually be unable to take part in. Your fundraising efforts made it possible for GoodLife Kids Foundation to fund specialized programs that provided these kids with modified equipment and the one-on-one support they needed to get active.

Every $285 raised at City Chase made a difference in another child's life. Here's a snapshot:


This year, you can help even MORE kids living with autism through GoodLife Kids Foundation! Just by being a fundraising Chaser, you will have the opportunity to support physical activity programs for children with autism.

The Confidence to Try #FEELGOODFRIDAY Lukas is a 10-year-old Raptors fan who plays basketball with his local chapter of Special Olympics, but it wasn’t that long ago that he was afraid to join a team. Lukas is an outgoing kid who likes to make friends and has always been very active. But his early experiences in organized physical activity were not positive. One of his biggest challenges with autism is struggling to follow directions in large groups. He was often told he was doing things wrong and even that he would embarrass the team. “These negative comments deflated his confidence, and he became afraid to try new things,” explained his mom Lisa. When he was eight, Lukas took part in the Sports of All Sorts program at the Geneva Centre for Autism. The supportive environment in the Sports of All Sorts program, funded by a GoodLife Kids grant, was a real game-changer for him. Constant encouragement and positive reinforcement gave Lukas a safe space to explore new activities without a fear of being judged. With one-on-one support he played basketball, baseball, tennis, and golf. “We’re so glad to make physical activity a regular part of Lukas’ life and we’ve found ways for him to continue practicing at home,” said Lisa. “We bought a tennis net for the backyard, and now that he’s not afraid, he loves to go to glow-in-the-dark mini-putt with his dad!” As Lukas turned around on the basketball court to wave to his mom, he gave her two big thumbs up and her eyes welled up with tears of joy. “Watching him enjoy himself, I’m overwhelmed with happiness and pride,” she shared. “He has talents! But most of all, he has regained a belief in himself – that he CAN do it – and that is so powerful.”
