Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada, Ontario- Central Region
Markham Markville 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 increase physical activity levels among children and youth through the Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada.
The Youth Enhancing Physical Activity Together NOW! Program is different than any other physical activity program offered in Boys and Girls Clubs. The program’s new approach focuses on intense physical activity for longer periods of time, using fully collaborative games (no one goes out). The “by youth for youth” approach to be used will enable youth leaders to train and inspire other club members.
GoodLife Kids Foundation has committed to support Youth Enhancing Physical Activity Together NOW! Program for the first 24 months of the pilot. During this time, 215 children and youth from Markham, York Region, Sarnia & Pembroke will have the opportunity to develop habits of physical activity and healthy living.
