KidSport, British Columbia- Burnaby

The Burnaby Northgate GoodLife Fitness Club members and staff made a passionate commitment to fundraise for GoodLife Kids Foundation during the 2011 Be A Kid’s Superhero Campaign, and their efforts are being recognized with a grant to KidSport Burnaby to give children and youth the opportunity for sport.

Burnaby has the second highest population of low income families compared to other mainland municipalities, including a visible minority higher than the Metro Vancouver rate, which makes it especially challenging for children and youth to join in sport.

KidSport Burnaby makes it possible for children and youth to participate in organized sport who would otherwise not be able to due to financial circumstances. With the GoodLife Kids Foundation Grant to KidSport Burnaby, 35 to 50 children will have the opportunity to play a season of sport in Burnaby and develop lifelong habits of physical activity.

Today we're celebrating the #SummerSolstice and #InternationalYogaDay Yoga is an awesome way to help kids develop important physical and mental skills - and it can be easily adapted for all ages and abilities! For younger children, keep practices short and use stories and familiar animals or objects as cues for them to mimic with their poses. For older kids, try building to some more challenging balancing poses or turn inwards to focus on the stress-relieving benefits of the practice. #activekids #yoga
