This program is generously funded by the GoodLife Kid’s Foundation.
The GoodLife Kids Foundation fosters supportive environments to help kids with intellectual disabilities and/or autism thrive through physical activity and fitness. We have been able to help by providing funding to support ongoing physical activity and fitness opportunities through local, provincial, and national registered charities across Canada. Together, we are helping break down barriers so that more kids with special needs will have the chance to build belonging, confidence, and healthy active lives.
Note: Based on the funding, participation is limited families residing in the Orangeville/Caledon area. If your postal code does not correspond with these areas, we will not be able to accept you as a participant.
