Big Brothers Big Sisters, Ontario- Windsor Essex
Windsor Tecumseh Mall’s commitment to fundraise for GoodLife Kids Foundation during the 2010 Be A Kid’s Superhero Campaign is being recognized with a grant to Big Brothers Big Sisters Windsor Essex to offer Go Girls! and Game On!
Go Girls! is a program designed to address the physical activity, balanced eating and positive self-image needs of young women ages 12-14 based on a group mentoring model. The main goal of Go Girls! is to develop an appreciation of the benefits of an active, healthy, lifestyle among girls.
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 are engaged in life skills, communication, and emotional health discussions designed to engage participants in the pursuit of life-long healthy lifestyles.
GoodLife Kids Foundation’s support for Go Girls! and Game On! will ensure 100 girls and boys have the opportunity to benefit from an active life while developing and building positive life skills, and relationships with mentors.
