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.

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
