The 519 Church Street Community Centre- Ontario, Toronto
Inclusive Play, Healthy Communities is a program located in the diverse Church and Wellesley Village of Toronto ON. The program reaches 720 kids, targeting ages 5-14 and 14-18 in the LGBT community, with LGBT parents or LGBT and gender independent youth. These kids face a common problem – access to familiar, welcoming and inclusive recreation spaces through which they can participate in recreation and sport. The program aims to introduce families to structured physical fitness opportunities in safer spaces and also equip families and youth to take that experience and learning into the broader community.
This grant was made possible by the fundraising efforts of Members and Associates of GoodLife Fitness Toronto Yonge and Eglinton.
