KidSport Calgary is proud to have Olympian Cheryl Bernard, Team KidSport Calgary Ambassador as our July MVP!
She believes all kids should have the opportunity to participate in sport and fulfill their dreams. She was given the opportunity to try many sports growing up; curling, soccer, baseball and track and field. Participation in sports can help build self esteem and confidence, it can help build social skills and teach children the benefits of goal setting, practice and commitment. Kids benefit from access to team and individual sports throughout their lifetime.
She chooses to support KidSport Calgary because they give kids from families, in financial need, the same chance to participate as their friends and neighbours. That’s why she created a one day camp for kids called “For The Love of Curling” in support of KidSport Calgary on Sunday September 25th. This is a chance for any and all kids to try a new sport, interact with other kids and spend sometime with Olympians who believe that no kid should be left out.
