Big Brothers Big Sisters of Guelph- Ontario, Guelph

Go Girls and Game On are programs that reach out to 256 youth ages 10-14 in the Guelph ON community. The programs target kids who come from single parent homes, live below the poverty line and/or have limited exposure to extra-curricular activities. The programs run once a week for seven weeks and 32 different groups will participate this school year. The main components of the programs touch on active living, balanced eating and feel good activities. Ultimately, these programs are designed to give kids the tools they need to implement a healthier and happier lifestyle.  

This grant was made possible by the fundraising efforts of the Members and Associates of GoodLife Fitness Guelph Pergola Commons.

Nicky’s favourite part of dance class? The performance! He’s a true showman, relishing the chance to show off all the new skills he’s learned. “It’s definitely the highlight for him,” explains Scott. Nicky is an enthusiastic 10-year-old with Down syndrome, who loves to express himself through movement. The first time Nicky tried his new Wii Dance system, his passion became even clearer and his parents became determined to support him exploring his love of dance. Propeller Dance prides themselves on offering opportunities for all children and was the perfect fit for Nicky. With live music for each and every class, he learned the power of creative movement and expression, including the use of space, time, and composition. And with dancers of all abilities in the same class, the kids in the program must continuously work together, adapt, and learn from one another. The result? A caring and understanding environment where Nicky can thrive and be himself. For four years, Nicky has been learning new ways to be creative, has developing innovative dance moves, and enjoying a new outlet for expressing himself. And just as important, he’s made tons of new friends who he gets to connect with every week. On top of being active and having tons of fun, Nicky’s family has seen many positive changes in other areas of his life. His ability to focus and take instructions have improved and he's learned how to take turns. As a seasoned dance expert, Nicky has become a leader in his class - Bravo! #FEELYOURIMPACT
