Today I am excited to introduce you to the Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital and one of their wonderful programs for Canadian youth across the country. The Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital is the largest children’s rehabilitation hospital in Canada, providing treatment, research and education services in the area of kids disability.
Their exciting brand new program is the Igniting Fitness Possibilities Program (IFP), which is an inclusive program designed to mobilize kids with and without disabilities to engage with and foster a passion for physical activity. The project has been conceived as a pilot project that can be refined by community partners and it has been a success since it started.
Each of the sessions offered are supported by trained instructors and they feature non-competitive team-work based games to help develop the participant’s sport-based skills. You can find more information about the IFP project here.
Last year, National Bank committed $100,000 over five years to supporting the Igniting Fitness Possibilities Program. This generous monetary contribution greatly aligns with National Bank’s ongoing commitment to support communities across Canada and provide crucial support to organizations in the areas of health, education, arts and culture, and community wellbeing.
Thanks to the National Bank’s generous donation the IFP program will continue supporting young kids’ fitness for years to come!
National Bank is also involved with One for Youth, a program that invites non-profit organizations and schools across Canada to submit projects that help to develop the wellbeing of young adult. Selected recipients receive up to $15,000 in financial support and there have been over 279 organizations across Canada funded so far. More info about One for Youth here.
I am also sharing a wonderful heart warming video that captures the IFP program in action below. You must watch it below.
I really appreciate programs like this one designed to help young children. Have you heard about the IFP program before this post?
