Niagara Support Services - Ontario, Niagara Falls

GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting Niagara Support Services’ Children’s Movement Program. Serving children with developmental disabilities, the program focuses on teaching gross and fine motor skills, increasing flexibility and strength, spatial awareness, range of motion, walking patterns, and energy expenditure. Activities are all play-based for maximum engagement from participants with visual cues and schedules to provide structure and predictability. Movement skills are taught through concepts such as body awareness, learning to bounce, walk, lie down, climb, and balance, and are reinforced by home play. Parents are provided with suggestions for activities that will encourage new skills, practice existing skills, and make exercise fun and playful. Funding from GoodLife Kids Foundation will allow the program to grow to two nights per week, doubling their capacity to serve children in the Niagara area.

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
