The Children’s Treatment Centre (CTC) received a generous donation of $10,000 donation from the GoodLife Kids Foundation this December in support of their Adapted Swim Program.

Adapted Swim is available to all CTC clients, age 3 through 21, who have physical, developmental or communication challenges. The program helps participants grow a variety of skills and abilities including recreation and physical activity, pool safety and awareness, basic swimming skills, transition skills, communication and social skills. What makes it even more exciting is that the skills learned in the CTC’s Adapted Swim Program are transferable to other physical activity and recreation programs outside of the Centre, helping participants to live healthy, active lives.

Mike Genge, Executive Director of the Children’s Treatment Centre Foundation stated that,

“It’s a great start to this holiday season to have the GoodLife Kids Foundation support the CTC’s commitment to healthy and active children in our community. This donation will enable the Centre to enhance equipment and programming for the Centre’s esteemed Adapted Swim Program”
