Kidsport believes 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.
By providing kids with an opportunity to participate in sport programs, KidSport encourages:
- developing early physical activity habits that will help increase the probability that kids will remain active in adulthood
- getting kids active in sport programs when they are young to develop a strong and healthy community for the future
- helping to create these opportunities for sport participation and playing a significant role in supporting many under-represented families in Canada facing economic obstacles
Each year, I participate in the Kidsport Corporate Kids Challenge, hosted by Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers, to help raise money for Kidsport BC. The Kidsport Corporate Kids Challenge provides an opportunity for corporate workers to step outside of the office, stretch their legs, embrace their inner child, and take part in some competitive games and activities.
