Kidsport Gets A Little More Cash – Could Go Long Way
More kids in Grande Prairie may be playing sports with the help of Kidsport Alberta.
The local chapter is getting a $2 thousand cash boost as part of a new deal with Strad Energy.
Local Kidsport Chair Kevin Mack says it will help those parents who may not be able to afford the costs of signing up a kid for hockey or soccer.
“Our goal is to get kids off the sideline by removing the financial barriers that prevent them from playing sports; I mean an active child is less likely to get into trouble.”
Last year, Kidsport Grande Prairie helped 249 kids play organized sports.
