Kids to score with GoodLife awards

The GoodLife Kids Foundation wants to hear about outstanding organizations that are getting kids active

The GoodLife Kids Foundation wants to hear about outstanding organizations that are getting kids active in communities across Canada.

Members of the general public are invited to nominate local charities that they feel deserve financial support for children’s physical activity programs.

Ten worthy charities will share $100,000 in grant funds through the Win 4 Kids contest.

“Win 4 Kids is a fun and engaging way to give back to the many people who support our vision. Every Canadian kid deserves the opportunity to live a fit and healthy good life,” said foundation executive director Lisa Burrows.

“We want Canadians to play a role in the decision to support great local programming.”

Contest finalists will be notified in the new year. All 10 finalists are winners.

Finalist organizations take part in a campaign for public votes that will decide which programs take home prizes of $5,000, $8,000, $12,000, and the grand prize of $25,000.

Results will be unveiled with cheque presentations at Spin4Kids Plus events at GoodLife Fitness locations across Canada March 5, 2016.

Help make an impact in your community by nominating a local organization online today.

Nominations are being accepted until Dec. 14.

An organization’s program must fit the following criteria to be eligible.

GoodLife Kids Foundation is accepting nominations on behalf of registered charities, elementary schools, and other qualified donees as identified under the Income Tax Act (Canada).

Grants will be awarded to initiatives that provide the opportunity for sustainable physical activity, primarily focused on children ages four to 14 years.
