KidSport help MLA Bill Barisoff presents $1

Donation assists KidSport

MLA presents $1,000 cheque to fund to help youth play sports.

KidSport Summerland is thriving and recently received a $1,000 cheque from MLA Bill Barisoff to assist the program.

KidSport Summerland is a community based sport-funding program established during the Winter Olympics in 2010. KidSport Summerland is part of both a national and provincial branch and the uniqueness of the program is that all funds raised stay in Summerland.

The local KidSport Summerland committee has now assisted more than 75 youth to play sports.

More than 15 organizations and individuals have made donations to the program and more than $10,000 have been donated to children and families in Summerland. These donations allow the children to take part in softball, baseball, soccer, swim club, football and a variety of local sports.

The KidSport Summerland Committee is overseen by a local committee and all the funds are invested in local youth.

KidSport applications are always available at the Parks and Recreation offices.
