Cerebral Palsy Association in Alberta- Calgary

The Cerebral Palsy Association offers the Little Nemos Swimming Program in the Calgary area. This weekly program is open to children aged 3-10 with any disability, not only cerebral palsy. This program begins with basic swimming skills to encourage participants to feel comfortable in the water. Each week the Little Nemos will practice these skills and continue to build on them. The instructor will modify the lesson to accommodate the needs and abilities of each individual and will guide the parents and/or volunteers to work with the participants at their own pace. The ability to move easily and freely in the water is liberating and exciting for these children. With the assistance of the instructor and volunteers, each child is learning the joys of water and laughing with their peers.

Many children living with a disability find it difficult to take part in physical activity. The Little Nemos Swimming Program shows participants that an active lifestyle is for all. Teaching children healthy habits early in life will set them up to have healthy and happy adult lives.

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
