Greenway Chaplin Community Centre, Ontario- Cambridge
Greenway Chaplin Community Centre is a neighbourhood nonprofit organization located in Cambridge. Residents in this neighbourhood are typically low income, new immigrants and/or single parent families. With input from their community, Greenway Chaplin is offering a free physical activity program for children, in a safe environment.
Fit Kids Club, the Centre’s newest after school program, focuses on healthy living and active children. The program will host children grades 2-6 who reside in the neighborhood. Fit Kids Club addresses a large number of problems in the neighborhood such as the affordability of an after school program, access to recreation, and a safe environment for children to be in while parents are working.
The grant will give 20 students the opportunity to take part in physical activity and also learn about health, nutrition and the benefits of activity.
