Big Brothers Big Sisters, Ontario- Peel Region
Game On! Eat Smart, Play Smart, Live Smart uses a mentor approach to provide boys ages 11-14 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, 100-120 participants will have the opportunity to become involved in lifestyle decision making and develop habits for regular physical activity.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Peel Region will partner with the University of Toronto Mississauga Concurrent Education Program and the Guelph-Humber University Justice Studies Program to assist in successfully recruiting new male mentors to this program as the students can complete volunteer hours in their roles as Game On! mentors.
The grant is made possible through the fundraising efforts of Bramalea City Centre GoodLife Fitness members and associates during the 2012 Be A Kid’s Superhero Campaign.
