Holland Bloorview Kids Rehab Hospital Foundation, Ontario- Toronto

Holland Bloorview’s Igniting Fitness Possibilities program is a brand new initiative that seeks to inspire and mobilize inactive children and youth, with and without disabilities in the Greater Toronto Area. This two year program will address and overcome barriers to participation by offering inclusive, supported sport and fitness activities in local neighborhoods. The expectation is that, with the right supports and opportunities close to home, kids will discover activities they enjoy, make friends, find role models and develop healthy habits to carry forward into adulthood.

‘Ignite’ will be offered in the GTA by Holland Bloorview and its community partners, including the Abilities Centre, Variety Village, and Toronto Parks. Experts from Holland Bloorview, Variety Village & the Abilities Centre will train the other partners in offering inclusive and adapted sports and fitness activities to build capacity in the community. It is anticipated up to 96 children will participate in the two year pilot project.

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
