Give the Gift of Sport this season to help eliminate financial barriers So ALL Kids Can Play!
KidSport is very excited to launch its sixth annual Give the Gift of Sport campaign. This year’s fundraising initiative will run through to January 8, 2018—aiming to get more kids off the sidelines, into the game, and experience the gift of sport! As it has in years past, the 2017 campaign includes a public peer-to-peer fundraising component, so all Canadians including schools, clubs, leagues and workplaces, can set-up donation pages and raise funds through their own networks for KidSport. All donations can be designated to a particular province or community chapter. All funds raised in a given community will remain in that community, to assist children locally.

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.
