GoodLife Fitness Spin4Kids | Family Respite Services Windsor Essex
November 17, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 1:30 pm
For the third year in a row Family Respite Services Windsor Essex in partnership with GoodLife Kids Foundation presents Spin4Kids at GoodLife Fitness’ Tecumseh Mall location on Saturday, November 17, 2018.
Thousands of Canadians across the nation, including some in Windsor, will simultaneously take part in the Spin4Kids fitness fundraiser for a day of spinning, moving and grooving to help Windsor kids connect with physical activity.
Proceeds from this event will provide recreational programming for children with disabilities in Windsor/Essex County. This generous funding from GoodLife Kids Foundation ensures that children with disabilities have access to participate in sport, recreation, and physical activity in our community through programs including Super Saturdays. Children will enjoy activities including swimming, dance and gym time.
Super Saturdays was implemented in 2015 by Family Respite Services in partnership with St. Clair College after GoodLife Kids Foundation awarded them a grant of nearly ten thousand dollars. The program ensures that children with disabilities have something engaging planned for every Saturday afternoon, parents receive a much needed break and students at St. Clair College in related programs get hands on experience through this placement opportunity.
This funding is available in our community, thanks to fundraising efforts at the annual Spin4Kids fitness-fundraiser taking place Saturday, November 17 at GoodLife Fitness Windsor, Tecumseh Mall location. FRS is inviting members of the community to join in and participate so that children with disabilities can engage in physical activity.
One particular child, Adyson will publicly thank everyone at GoodLife and share with you, how this funding changed his life…
“Many people wake up and head to the gym on any given day, but on Nov. 17th, our community will head to the gym with more than one purpose. Today is a day that we come together to ensure that we live in an inclusive and accessible community where children with disabilities and children and youth with mental health challenges have the opportunity to register for community based recreation activities. “It’s so important for children to build healthy habits, summer day camp helps set the foundation for ALL kids”, says Alexandria Fischer, Community Relations.
