Prince Albert residents got moving for a good cause Saturday as GoodLife Fitness held their national Spin4Kids fundraiser.
GoodLife Assistant General Manager Paula Bulatao said the annual event supports physical activity programs for children through the GoodLife Kids Foundation. This year, Bulatao said organizers have set the bar high, with a national fundraising goal of $1.2 million.
“It’s for a great cause,” Bulatao said. “Our club would like to raise $10,000.”
Bulatao said three teams of eight registered for the Prince Albert fundraiser, and drop-ins will be participating throughout the day.
After last year’s Spin4Kids event, the Prince Albert GoodLife location was able to make a $10,000 donation to Hope’s Home in Prince Albert, which was used for fitness-related activities and outings.
“It actually lets us provide the children at the daycare with extra opportunities that we would have never got if we didn’t have the support,” Nicole Foy, acting regional operations manager with Hope’s Home, said. “We’re very grateful.”
Foy said the donation was used to purchase bicycles and other equipment for their gymnasium, and also paid for the entire daycare to take a trip to Saskatoon and visit the Western Development Museum and zoo. The funds, Foy said, also supported some fitness-related local outings for the kids, including gymnastics and swimming.
“They loved it,” Foy said. “We can’t run Hope’s Home Daycare without community support.”
