University of Guelph, Ontario - Guelph
GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting the Integrated Track & Field Summer Camp at the University of Guelph. Guelph Gryphons Athletics host one of the largest Track & Field camps in Canada, led by certified coaches and talented varsity athletes. After hosting several successful parasport “Give It A Try” days over the past year, the Gryphons have decided to open opportunities for children with disabilities to attend their popular track & field summer camp for the first time. The new vision for the camp is to be a fully integrated experience where athletes with and without disabilities learn and practice athletics together. The Gryphons plan to use this opportunity to develop a model that can be replicated in their other sport-specific camps. Funds from GoodLife Kids Foundation will help support the introduction of an integrated camp for one week in August 2016 and will introduce 20 children with special needs to track & field activities.
