2020 is our 25th Anniversary as a KidSport Chapter

We want you involved in making this the biggest and best year yet!

THE CAMPAIGN

Whether you are a corporation that has provincial scope, a major player in your community, a small business, sport club, team, athlete or individual with a passion for sport we have opportunities for you to play a big part of KidSport 25!

Not only do we have opportunities, we believe we have built a foundation that will not only drive this story in 2020 but will live on with KidSport for many years to follow.

The campaign will launch on January 7 of 2020 as we begin sharing our message with a focus on the power of sport, the positive role it plays for kids and the life skills it provides. Each month we will have different ambassadors and corporate partners to build on this message with the general theme of when we ______ we learn!

The campaign messaging, ambassador and corporate partner stories will be shared across social media channels with the purpose of providing a baseline conversation throughout 2020 that will be supported with a new KidSport video that we are super excited to share and some very cool fundraising initiatives that will give KidSport 25 a voice throughout our province.

Below you will find a variety of ways you, your company, your team or your community can be involed in helping KidSport make it So ALL Kids Can Play!
