The GoodLife Kids Foundation is offering a new program, MOVE by GoodLife Kids, to youth with disabilities free of charge.
oodLife Kids Foundation is a registered charity, focused on helping kids and youth with special needs have equal opportunities to experience the joys and benefits of being active. MOVE by GoodLife Kids is a virtual physical activity program for youth with intellectual disabilities and/or autism, ages 12 - 21. MOVE is offered 3 times a week and led by a Coach with expertise in delivering fitness to individuals with special needs. MOVE has been introduced in order to eliminate some of the barriers to participation that youth with special needs face – such as higher cost for adapted programming, lack of available programs to suit individual needs, inaccessible environments and isolation due to COVID-19.
MOVE is being offered at no cost to families to ensure this is not an additional barrier to participation. This has been made possible through funds raised by GoodLife Fitness Members and Associates in support of GoodLife Kids Foundation.
The GoodLife Kids Foundation is now accepting applications for participants in the Belleville location.
A potential MOVE Participant is:
- 12 to 21 years with an intellectual disability and/or autism
- Lives in one of the listed communities and/or surrounding area
- Has access to a computer and an internet connection
