Move Youth Forward!

By Shelby Weaver

This year, we replaced the annual H.W. Coulson Swim-A-Thon with a brand-new virtual event, Move Youth Forward. Between June 13th – June 20th, 2022, participants of all ages were encouraged to get active in any way that felt best to them to support children and youth programs. Together, we raised $4,505!

These funds will help the Club continue to offer high-quality programs that children and youth in our community need and love, and expand to serve them even better. We are so excited to offer all-new programs, like Next Level Sports (NLS) and Reading Rocks Summer Fun, which are officially rolling out in the first week of July! And last, but not least, we are continuing to expand rural programs in Ilderton and Thorndale.

Offering programs for children and youth in rural communities has made a major difference!

“We are very appreciative of the Club bringing so many programs to our community. And we are happy to have a safe place for our daughter to hang out with friends.” - Parent

"My daughter has been to the drop ins twice and loved every minute of it! We have a countdown going for Saturday lol! Love this program and the youth centre!" - Ilderton Parent

Thank you to our Club Alumni who sat down with us to share their stories about the Club, filmed by the Digital Arts Creative Centre, and the Horton Street Seniors’ Centre for putting together the Get Fit Power Hour. We could not do any of this without our generous supporters!
