OUR WHY

Being active is an important part of every child’s healthy development.  Physical activity participation helps children not only develop strength, coordination, and flexibility – but also plays a significant role in social development.  It provides organic opportunities to learn skills like working together, taking turns, listening, and following instructions.  Even better, being active is FUN!

Kids with special needs often face additional barriers to participation in physical activity including higher cost for adapted programming, a lack of available programs that suit their needs, and inaccessible environments. Together, we’re helping break down barriers so that more kids with special needs will have the chance to build belonging, confidence, and healthy active lives.

GoodLife Fitness Commitment

GoodLife Fitness covers 100% of our administrative and operational expenses so that every dollar raised will make the biggest impact on the lives of Canadian kids.
