Big Brothers Big Sisters, Ontario- Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox, Addington

GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox, Addington’s Go Girls! and Game On programs.

Go Girls! is designed to address the physical activity, balanced eating and positive self-image needs of girls ages 10-14 based in a group mentoring model. The main goal of Go Girls! is for girls to develop an appreciation of the benefits of an active, healthy lifestyle. The program is structured around four themes: physical activity, healthy eating, self-esteem, and communication skills.

Game On! uses a mentor approach to provide boys ages 10-14 with information and support to make informed choices about a range of healthy lifestyle practices. Through non-traditional physical activities, complemented with healthy eating support, participants will have the opportunity to become involved in lifestyle decision making and develop habits for regular physical activity.

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
