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.

Today we're celebrating the #SummerSolstice and #InternationalYogaDay Yoga is an awesome way to help kids develop important physical and mental skills - and it can be easily adapted for all ages and abilities! For younger children, keep practices short and use stories and familiar animals or objects as cues for them to mimic with their poses. For older kids, try building to some more challenging balancing poses or turn inwards to focus on the stress-relieving benefits of the practice. #activekids #yoga
