WE ARE TURNING 25 in 2020!
Next year our KidSport chapter along with chapters across Alberta will be celebrating our 25th Anniversary. It is hard to believe that it will be 25 years since an amazing group of volunteers came together to ensure local kids in Calgary and throughout Alberta had the access to sport they were struggling to get. In 1995 this group of outstanding leaders started KidSport in Calgary & across Alberta, opening the door to endless opportunities for hundreds of local kids who were needing our help. Through their efforts, ongoing support from our community and an endless amount of volunteers that have followed in their footsteps we have now provided the Gift of Sport to over 50,000 kids locally and over 120,000 across Alberta.
At a local level this has required our chapter, through the efforts of hundreds of volunteers, partners, board members, donors, events and staff along the way, to raise and distribute over $13 million dollars that has gone directly back into our local sports community and economy to ensure KidSport kids have a place to PLAY!
2020 is going to be a great opportunity to celebrate this historic impact as part of our 25th Anniversary. This milestone year will also be the perfect platform and spotlight for KidSport to expand our reach with new partnerships, new donors and new sponsors to ensure we are ready to bring sport to life for deserving kids in our communities for the next 25 years. That is where you come in! We are looking for companies to join us as we piece together a yearlong community engagement plan that will share stories of our past, develop the partnerships of the future and educate our community at all levels on just how important and impactful this grassroots, community funded, charity has and will continue to be for years to come!
In Calgary & Area we are striving to raise over $3 million dollars in 2020 and provincially our KidSport team is striving to raise over $6 million dollars across Alberta to ensure KidSport kids have the support they need in 2020 and beyond.
