St. Robert Catholic School, Ontario- London

Students and staff at St. Robert Catholic School in London are helping researchers find better ways to fight childhood obesity through NSTEP Eat Walk Live with Nutrition Ignition.  Led by principal investigator Dr. Danielle Battram of Brescia University College, this program is being made possible by a grant from GoodLife Kids Foundation.

“GoodLife Kids Foundation is committed to changing the future health of today’s kids through physical activity and healthy eating habits,” says GoodLife Kids Champion, Silken Laumann.  We chose to support this program because we recognize the vast potential it has to provide education and insight for Canadian schools in helping to promote regular physical activity and healthy eating habits in children’s lives.”

Students from grades 1 to 8 receive lessons from undergraduate students in kinesiology and nutrition that complement the existing school curriculum around health.  Newsletters, a health fair and a family take home challenge also help to involve parents and families.

Together, we can create a healthy future for Canadian kids

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
