Your Fundraising Dollars

Funds raised through Spin4Kids Plus will help GoodLife Kids Foundation continue to support programs across Canada that are getting kids physically active. To date over 212,000 kids have had the opportunity to live a fit and healthy good life.

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.


In March 2011, Dr. Dick Barter, GoodLife group cycling instructor and emergency room physician in St. John’s NL, held a spin-a-thon event to help more Canadian kids get active. With the help of GoodLife Members and Associates the event raised $23,000. This success brought upon the idea of a coast to coast challenge to other GoodLife clubs – a nationwide spin-a-thon with participants raising funds for GoodLife Kids Foundation. The 1st annual Spin4Kids was born in 2012.
