Girls On The Run, Ontario- Brampton

A report from a local child advocacy group showed that families in Peel- especially newcomers, face significant challenges in meeting the basic needs of their children. Those from low income families, immigrant families and visible minorities are especially at risk.

A grant from GoodLife Kids Foundation will allow 22-30 girls at two high risk schools in the Brampton area to participate in Girls On The Run. Girls On The Run supports girls with diverse athletic abilities and gives them the opportunity to experience running, and become empowered with life skills and confidence. The program will impact two areas of the community and create a spark in both schools that will transcend into the home.

The grant is made possible through the fundraising efforts of Brampton Kingspoint Plaza GoodLife Fitness members and staff during the 2011 Be A Kid’s Superhero Campaign.

Here are some of the cards that GoodLife Kids Foundation received from girls who participated in Girls on the Run.
