Calgary Quest School, Alberta- Calgary
GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting Calgary Quest School’s Run/Walk Program.
The Calgary Quest School student population is made up of students with multiple, complex medical issues that include delays in cognition, behavior, communication, vision, and gross and fine motor skills. The Run/Walk Program will be incorporated into the school’s curriculum for 2013-2014 and will be run by the school’s on-site physiotherapist. All students and all staff will participant 3 times per week and lessons will include sessions on hydration, nutrition and stretching.
The end goal for some of the students will be to take part in a 5km race. All students will acquire skills and knowledge that will be carried forward into their non-scholastic lives.
