KidSport Calgary has teamed up with Brian Burke to put on a very unique event in support of the Flames Even Strength Program and KidSport Calgary. The Brian Burke Targets for Kids event, presented by Wholesale Sports will see teams of four compete with a celebrity in a fun day of clay shooting for a cause. As an added bonus we will have three time Olympian Biathlete and Team KidSport ambassador Zina Kocher competing as a celebrity and special guest.
How does it work? Real simple, get your team of 4 together, get signed up (only 4 team spots remaining) show up on Thursday June 9th and enjoy a BBQ lunch, dinner, receive some expert instruction and safety demo, try your hand at shooting down some clay targets, and have a few laughs as we work to raise some dollars for two great programs that are focused on helping kids less fortunate get active through sport.
Listen to Brian Burke on Sportsnet 960 as he helps launch the event with Rob Kerr on the Big Show
