 Spin 4 Kids 2013: A National Event with Local Investment
Canada’s largest indoor cycling
 fundraiser is creating a healthier path for Canadian Children
[London, ON]
On Saturday March 2, 2013 GoodLife Fitness employees, Members and non-Members,partners, friends and family will hop on indoor cycles to participate in the 2
nd
annual Spin 4 Kids,
Canada’
s largest one-day spin-a-thon, in support of the GoodLife Kids Foundation (GLKF).The event will feature thousands of riders, on teams of up to eight (beginners to experts), spinning foreight hours in GoodLife Fitness Clubs, local malls, community centres, and hotel conference roomsacross Canada
rom St. John’s, Newfoundland to Victoria, British Columbia
.
A local idea that is making a national impact:
The creation of Spin 4 Kids was a direct result of the efforts of Dr. Richard Barter, who in 2011, with the
help of GoodLife employees, Members, and guests in St. John’s NFLD, created a local group cycling
event that raised over $23,000 for the GoodLife Kids Foundation. After this success, Dr. Barter, anEmergency Room Physician and GoodLife Group Cycling Instructor, challenged all the GoodLife Clubsacross Canada to a one-day spin-a-thon fundraiser to support GLKF and their vision of getting kids
active…c
reating the first national Spin 4 Kids event! At the 2012 event, Dr. Barter, or the
Spin Doctor
ashe is affectionately known, and his team and the community raised over $53,000 and were crowned theNational Spin 4 Kids Fundraising Champion.
“The first
National Spin 4 Kids event was a great achievement but we know there is still much more work
that needs to be done to get Canadian children on a healthier path,” said Dr. Barter, who is leading the2013 event as the National Spin 4 Kids Chairperson. “It is uplifting to know that our team in St. John’s
has inspired GoodLife Clubs across Canada but also that our efforts have made a positive differencelocally, with a recent GoodLife Kids Foundation $15,000 Grant being made to the Boys and Girls Club of St.
John’s,” concluded Dr. Barter.
GoodLife Kids Foundation provided the
Boys and Girls Club of St. John’s with a grant to their Blast off to
Wellness program. Blast off to Wellness will educate and actively engage participants in the areas of healthy eating, physical activity and healthy lifestyles. The grant is made possible through the
fundraising efforts of St. John’s Atlantic Place and St. John’s Torbay Road GoodLife Fitness Members andAssociates during the 2012 Spin 4 Kids Event and the Be A Kid’s Sup
erhero Campaign.
“As GoodLife Kids Champion I’m thrilled to support Dr. Barter and Spin 4 Kids,”
said 3-time Olympic
Medalist, Silken Laumann. “
The issue of inactivity and obesity is something that affects every Canadian.Inactivity is affecting the quali
ty and quantity of children’s lives,”
continued Laumann.
With the support
 
of GoodLife Fitness, each GoodLife Club and the local communities in which they operate, GoodLife KidsFoundation helps get kids active in concrete ways and together we can make a significant impact on thehealth and lives of our children.
 
Last year, GoodLife Kids Foundation’s inaugural Spin 4 Kids
raised over $184,000. Because of this success
and other fundraising initiatives, GoodLife Kids Foundation’s 
Grant Program,was able to provide a totalof $275,000 in 2012, to local organizations that help Canadian kids live healthier, happier, and moreactive lives. To date,
GoodLife Kids Foundation has given nearly $1 MILLION to over 80 organizationsand helped almost 200,000 Canadian children.
