St. Jean de Brebeuf Secondry School, Ontario- Hamilton

GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting St. Jean de Brebeuf Secondary School’s Functional Fitness Program in Hamilton ON.

The Functional Fitness program will allow grade 9 to become physically fit and physically literate by targeting five fundamental movements (squatting, lunging, pushing, pulling and carrying). Students will develop the necessary functional strength to lead healthy lives, whether they chose to participate in recreation sport or simply lead active lives.

Students will also be introduced to a non-traditional, fun, inclusive, low-organizational sport called Kin Ball. This will engage students of all physical abilities, encouraging cooperation and teamwork while promoting physical literacy and fitness.

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
