Toronto Council Fire Native Cultural Centre, Ontario- Toronto
GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting Toronto Council Fire Native Cultural Centre’s Little Embers Program.
Aboriginal communities have been struggling with numerous health and social problems ranging from rampant diabetes, hypertension and poor physical fitness to issues of homelessness and addictions.
The Little Embers Physical Recreation program provides essential access to recreational activities, social supports and academic assistance based on cultural values and traditions. The 7-15 year old Aboriginal youth in the program become equipped with a range of essential life-skills to promote healthier, more active day-to-day lives. GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting the physical activity portion of Little Embers Program.
The grant is made possible through the fundraising efforts of the Toronto Group Exercise Team and GoodLife Fitness members and associates during the 2012 Be A Kid’s Superhero Campaign.
