KidsAbilty Centre for Child Development- Ontario, Waterloo

Children with special needs have a difficult time learning recreation skills such as skating, due to challenges such as balance and coordination, motor impairments and lack of specialized equipment. SkateAble offers skating instruction either individually or to small groups based on the participant’s needs and skills. Adapted equipment, specialized skating aids and adapted skates are available to maximize success. Children learning to skate in this program will have further opportunities for participation through continued skill development, special hockey teams, joining peers on skating outings and enjoying skating as part of a family recreation activity.

This grant was made possible by the fundraising efforts of the GoodLife Fitness Club Services Department.

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
