Autism Society Newfoundland Labrador - St. John's

GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting the 1:1 Swim Program offered by the Autism Society, Newfoundland Labrador. Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder in St. John’s area are introduced to swimming during private lessons with instructors with specialized training. The 1:1 Swim Program helps ease the stress of unfamiliar settings and activities by offering a safe and supportive learning environment. During individualized lessons, swimmers are able to work towards personal goals. Following 8 week sessions, participants have gained confidence to join their family and friends in the pool. Many are able to transition to typical small group lessons for further instruction. Funds from GoodLife Kids Foundation will help expand the program to serve up to 80 kids per year, getting them off the waitlist and active in the water.

On this final day of #NationalVolunteerWeek, we'd like to introduce you to one of our all-stars. Dr. Dick Barter is a force to be reckoned with. An emergency room physician and group fitness instructor, Dick knows the importance of physical activity in children's' lives. He is the man behind #Spin4Kids - the fundraiser started in St. John's, NL and has since inspired others event locations across the country to rally behind our cause. Under Dick's leadership over the years, the St. John's event alone has raised nearly $700,000 and is always a big party! Dick's passion has been key to bringing us to the next level... he truly is a man with a plan 🌟 #NVW2017 #VolunteeringEh? #Gratitude
