Funds Raised Through The GoodLife Fitness City Chase
By fundraising through The GoodLife Fitness City Chase Series, you have the opportunity to help GoodLife Kids Foundation support ongoing physical activity programs for children with autism in each of the event cities – Toronto, Edmonton, Vancouver, Ottawa and Calgary. Funds raised will make a difference in the lives of children with autism by providing activities that encourage them be more active.
Exercise for children with special needs provides the same benefits as with any child. It’s great for their body and also for their brain health and how happy it makes them feel. Scientists have shown that exercise increases the amount of blood flowing to your brain and this can help improve your mood. The best part is that even small amounts of regular exercise have these benefits. It’s about the abilities we can nurture with physical activity which can be adapted in so many ways, the sense of community for all and the fun that comes from moving your body!
