About GoodLife Kids Foundation

Let's get kids off the couch

At GoodLife Kids Foundation, our purpose is for every Canadian kid to have the opportunity to live a fit and healthy good life. We provide funding to ensure physical activity programs across Canada are reaching kids and getting them off the couch and into their running shoes.

Recent studies* show that only 5% of Canadian kids aged 5 to 17 get the recommended 60 minutes per day of moderate to vigorous physical activity. Kids spend too much of their waking hours sedentary and there is less opportunity for unstructured play.

That’s where GoodLife Kids Foundation comes in!

GoodLife Kids Foundation raises funds to support national, provincial and local programs that provide sustainable physical activity opportunities for kids and remove some of the barriers currently holding children back from living a healthy life.

The GoodLife Kids Grant Program provides funding for ongoing physical activity programs for children with special needs. We recently redefined our focus to give grants to organizations that have a need to support children with special needs as a valuable resource to help fill the funding gap for these programs.

The GoodLife4Kids School Program partners with local teachers to teach fitness skills in grade 4 classes at no cost to schools. We are currently in the pilot phase of the program with select communities across Canada to further engage schools in fitness and activity.

To date GoodLife Kids Foundation has helped over 221,000 Canadian kids get active.
