Wear your jersey for KidSport on May 25

The event is a fundraiser for the children’s charity

We would like you to join us for Jersey Day for KidSport on May 25 during KidSport Week across Canada, which is May 22-28. For a donation of $2 or more, encourage employees, friends, students and staff to wear their favourite jersey in support of KidSport!

KidSport is a children’s charity that helps children of families facing financial obstacles to participate in community sport programs. The goal is to provide children with the same opportunities to play, learn life skills, and adopt active healthy lifestyles through sport.

Please share your photos on social media tagging @kidsportsk #JerseyDay #KidSportWeek.

Keep KidSport in mind if your school has an annual event that makes donations to charities. KidSport strives to ensure that 100 per cent of fundraising proceeds and donations are allocated to children and youth to participate in community sport programs. All donations stay local!

Submit donations via cash or cheque to your local chapter, KidSport Nelson, or donate online www.kidsportcanada.ca and choose your chapter.
