Here are just a few reasons we love Spin4Kids:

  • Team Building
    It feels great to work together to accomplish a goal - especially for a good cause. Round up your co-workers, friends, family or gym buddies to build your team of 8 and set your sights on a team fundraising goal of $1000 ($125/person).
  • Community Engagement
    Spin4Kids is a chance to break free from the office and show your community that you care. Meet new people, share your story, and give back to help the next generation of Canadians get physically active!
  • Healthy Habits
    Whether you’re already in a routine or have never set foot in a gym, Spin4Kids is for everyone. You don’t have to be a Member and it’s all about FUN! Spin4Kids is an awesome chance to try a new class or amp up your old favourites.
  • A Great Time
    Spin4Kids is a party! You’ll feel the energy with music pumping, special themes, prizes and costumes.
  • It’s For The Kids
    To date, over 240,000 Canadian kids have been positively impacted through the GoodLife4Kids School Program and the GoodLife Kids Grant Program. Together, we can help even more kids experience the joys and benefits of being physically active.

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.”
