“Much like our counterparts in other cities across Canada, KidSport New West’s goal has always been to minimize barriers for local children under 18 to participate in organized sports,” explains KidSport New West co-chair Jen Arbo. “We work to provide kids in New West with bursaries of up to $400 annually so all kids can play. Last year was our busiest year yet: we funded 120 kids with approximately $41,000 worth of grants, and this event will be one of our main ways of ensuring that we can continue to support the community. When families are struggling financially, organized sports are the first to go. Organized sports can help with so many parts of a child’s development, from academic performance to teamwork. ”

Tickets will be $10 each (exclusive of fees) and can be purchased online through Eventbrite.
