KidSport marks a milestone

KidSport of Williams Lake is celebrating helping more than 1,000 children to participate in various sports.

KidSport assists children to participate in community-based sporting activities thanks to donations of cash and/or sports equipment, said chair Michael Franklin.

He says KidSport has spent more than $100,000 locally during the past 10 years to help children participate in various sports.

The majority of this $100,000 has been raised by Williams Lake donors, with a portion coming from provincial and national fundraisers, he says.

Consistent support from the community of Williams Lake has assisted more than 1,000 children to participate in hockey, skating, soccer, lacrosse, flag football, softball, baseball, swimming, gymnastics, martial arts, boxing, wrestling, dance and skiing, he says.

“The committee would like to thank all those individuals and organizations that have donated in the past, with a special thank you to Mark Bremner (the annual Schonke Slowpitch tournament), Brian Stefan (Canadian Tire), and all the KidSport Classic runners.”

Applications for KidSport help may be picked up at the Cariboo Memorial Complex or at local schools.
