Calgary Sledge Hockey Association - Alberta, Calgary

GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting Calgary Sledge Hockey Association’s Junior Sledge Hockey Program. From September through April, children with disabilities under the age of 12 will enjoy Saturday sessions honing their hockey skills. The group plays under the moniker Calgary Venom, challenging local able-bodied teams to try their hand in sledges throughout the season and ultimately participating in the annual Western Canada Sledge Hockey Tournament. The program’s vision is to remove barriers to athletic success, develop leaders through sport, and to promote a culture of acceptance, innovation and teamwork. Venom participants have the opportunity to interact with a variety of health experts including nutritionists, yoga instructors and physiotherapists. These lessons give the children the tools they need to engage in a safe and healthy lifestyle. Through sledge hockey, children build confidence, acceptance, and foster friendships in the supportive environment provided by the Calgary Sledge Hockey Association.

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
