Brownell School, Saskatchewan- Saskatoon

Teacher Janelle Will works to instill a love of movement and a passion for physical activity within her students at Brownell School. With support from GoodLife Kids Foundation, she is able to offer a physical activity program to her students to increase awareness of the various physical activities available and create a deeper knowledge, skill base, and love for movement.

The grant from GoodLife Kids Foundation will allow 120 students to experience enriched physical activity programming that will permit them to develop not only better physical skills, but social, emotional and personal skills as well. It will also provide students with a greater variety of instruction, both in learning new skills and learning from different instructors beyond what is required by the curricular. Sample activities include yoga, aerobics, martial arts, dance, soccer, tennis and agility.

The program will instill an attitude that physical wellness is a lifelong journey to be enjoyed. By showing at school that being active can be fun, entertaining and creative, the students can take what they have learned in class to their families and share with them how to be physically active for life.

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
