West Ferris Intermediate Secondary School- Ontario, North Bay
GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting West Ferris Intermediate Secondary School’s Bike Program. The Bike Program is for youth (ages 12-14), with various special needs. The program seeks to encourage students with special needs to learn to navigate the community in a healthy and cost effective way. Cycling is an effective way to embed healthy living practices into the participant’s daily routines. Learning to cycle and navigate the community provides them with a life skill that will benefit their long term fitness and save money on transportation as well as offer them a level of independence which may otherwise never be part of their lives. Funds from GoodLife Kids Foundation will support the growth of this program and ensure it is available for students on an annual basis.
