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.

Today we're celebrating the #SummerSolstice and #InternationalYogaDay Yoga is an awesome way to help kids develop important physical and mental skills - and it can be easily adapted for all ages and abilities! For younger children, keep practices short and use stories and familiar animals or objects as cues for them to mimic with their poses. For older kids, try building to some more challenging balancing poses or turn inwards to focus on the stress-relieving benefits of the practice. #activekids #yoga
