Paramount and KidSport have teamed up So ALL Kids Can Play!

CALGARY, ALBERTA – [September 5, 2019] – Paramount Resources Ltd. (“Paramount”) has joined Team KidSport to help make it So ALL Kids Can Play. Announced today, Paramount and KidSport Alberta’s new $50,000 partnership will help more than 200 youth across Alberta get off the sidelines and into the game. 

The impact of this partnership will be recognized across the province, with funds allocated to the following KidSport chapters:

  • KidSport Red Deer County 

  • KidSport Grande Prairie 

  • KidSport Calgary & Area 

  • KidSport Alberta Provincial Fund 

  • KidSport Whitecourt 

As part of Paramount’s belief in giving back to the community, alongside KidSport’s grassroots programming, all funds will help kids participate in a sport of their choice.  

A significant portion of Paramount’s donation is allotted to the Indigenous KidSport Fund, which will support KidSport Alberta’s work with Indigenous communities across the province. This program brings opportunities for Indigenous youth to be involved in sport in their communities.

“We share KidSport’s belief that all youth should have the opportunity to participate in sport,” says, Cody Dziadek, VP, Operations & Production of Paramount. “This donation will help promote this program in communities where we live and work.”

“Paramount’s partnership with KidSport is going to help a lot of kids have the opportunity to play sport,” says Greg Ingalls, Executive Director at KidSport Alberta.  “In particular the commitment to kids living in Indigenous communities will give them the opportunity to learn life skills and benefit from all of the good things that sport participation has to offer.”
