St. John Vianney Catholic School, Ontario- Rexdale

GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting St. John Vianney Catholic School’s Gymtastics Program.

Students at St. John Vianney, in Rexdale ON, like many other places in Canada suffer from lack of activity as well as from obesity. This Gymtastics program will allow students access to gymnastics/climbing equipment that they otherwise would not have access to. Many students are unable to afford or find this type of programming in the area.

Gymtastics will provide students with an age appropriate circuit training program based on gymnastics. Stations will include a climbing wall, tumbling mats, balance beams among other things. This unique program will provide an under serviced community the opportunity to experience gymnastics and stability training first hand. It’s no secret that if someone likes doing something they will continue to do it. Through an enjoyable program as this, students will hopefully gain a lifelong love and respect for physical activity.

This grant was made possible by the fundraising efforts of Etobicoke King’s Mill GoodLife Fitness associates and members during the 2013 fundraising campaign.

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
