Lawrence Heights Middle School, Ontario- Toronto

GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting Lawrence Heights Middle School’s Lunch Time Basketball Program.

Lawrence Heights is located in a Toronto community that is noted for high levels of poverty and violence.  Lunch Time Basketball provides students in grades 6-8 with a supervised and caring program that will help lead them to success. Participating students learn basketball drills, skills and play in scrimmages based on ability level.  Students who participate in the program are selected to play on the school’s boys, girls and co-ed basketball teams. 

Lunch Time Basketball is a safe place for students of all ability levels to play.  This creates social bonds with students from different grade levels and has changed the school culture. The school has also found positive change in behavioural challenges students previously exhibited when returning to school in the afternoon.

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
