Vancouver Adaptive Snow Sports- British Columbia, Vancouver

GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting Vancouver Adaptive Snow Sports’ Adaptive Skiing for Children with Autism. Adaptive Skiing for Children with Autism is for children ages 5-14. The program incorporates skiing and snowboarding lessons according to ability and functioning, with a team of volunteer instructors. Learning to ski or snowboard provides the same thrill of accomplishment for individuals with a disability as their able-bodied peers. Being able to join friends and family in an activity provides great opportunities for social interaction and physical activity. The program will take on 30 students who each participate in six lessons. Funds from GoodLife Kids Foundation will be used grow this program, which began in 2014.

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
