KidSport™ is a children’s charity dedicated to assisting children of families facing financial obstacles to participate in community sport programs.
We believe that no kid should be left on the sidelines and all should be given the opportunity to experience the positive benefits of organized sports. KidSport™ provides support to children in order to remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sport.
All kids should be given the opportunity to develop healthy lifestyles, no matter the financial barriers that may exist. Staying physically active helps encourage children to maintain healthy habits throughout their whole lives. The challenges that come with playing sports also teach children valuable life lessons and skills including leadership, hard work, dedication and self-confidence.
2019 Give the Gift of Sport Campaign
On November 18th, KidSport launched their eighth annual Give the Gift of Sport fundraising campaign! They are calling on all Canadians to read more and make a donation at KidSport.ca/GiftofSport.
Over 30 percent of Canadian youth under the age of 18 cannot afford to play organized sport. With the help of Canadians across the country, our campaign will run through to January 6, 2020—aiming to get more kids off the sidelines, into the game, and experience the gift of sport!
Prairie Central Chapters include: Asquith, Humboldt, Kelvington, Warman & Area, Watrous, and Wynyard. Click here for more information.
