The Museum, Ontario- Waterloo

The museum- waterloo.jpgThe Museum is leading the way as a vital community resource by showcasing local innovation, protecting the environment, celebrating imagination and bringing educational experiences to life through the power of collaboration.  Kid’s in Motion: A Healthy Start is a new program based on all of these characteristics and is the first curriculum based program related directly to health and nutrition that has been held at the Waterloo Regional Children’s Museum.  This program will teach the children the importance of respecting their body by eating healthy and being physically fit, and will also help to create a community of healthy young adults whose habits can be passed on to future generations.

The Kids in Motion program runs during the school year for students in junior kindergarten to grade 3 and grade 5. Teachers and students get ‘in motion’ during the museum visit and continue to stay engaged back in the classroom.

With assistance from GoodLife Kids Foundation over 1,000 students will have the opportunity to be inspired to lead a healthy and active life.

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
