Swift Current Academy, Newfoundland- Goobies

 The St. John’s Atlantic Place GoodLife Fitness club is being recognized for their Top Fundraiser status during the 2011 Superhero Campaign with a grant to Swift Current Academy.

Swift Current Academy near Goobies Newfoundland currently lacks extra-curricular programs and physical education equipment for students. Because the school population is small - 54 students, there has been many years without a trained physical education teacher.

A grant from GoodLife Kids Foundation will allow the school to offer an improved basketball program to about 35 senior boys, senior girls and elementary students. The target of starting with elementary students will build sustainability of the program over the years. The outcome will be an improvement in students’ behaviour, enthusiasm, and grading, as well as the development of long-term physical activity habits.

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
