The iCan Bike program at ErinoakKids has been named one of nine finalists in the GoodLife Kids Foundation national Win 4 Kids contest. As part of the contest, held on Facebook, the Foundation is giving away a total of $100,000 to programs across Canada that are helping kids have a healthier future.
All nine finalists will receive grants, but Canadians’ votes will determine the amount of the grants they receive. Based on the number of votes received in their region, organizations will receive a first place ($12,000), second place ($8,000) or third place ($5,000) grant. The organization that gets the most votes nationally will receive an additional national winner prize of $25,000, along with the first place regional prize of $12,000, for a total of $37,000.
Here’s how to vote:
Online voting takes place on the Win 4 Kids Facebook contest page. Voters can make their selection by logging into their Facebook account, liking ‘Goodlife Kids Foundation’ and selecting an organization. Voters require a Facebook account to participate and are only allowed to vote once during the contest. Voting goes until 11:59 p.m. on February 28. You can also help spread the word by sharing the link with your Facebook friends, of if you’re on Twitter, connect with @goodlifefkids and join the conversation using the hash tag #Win4Kids.
The results of the contest will be announced on March 1 at GoodLife Spin4Kids events across the country.
