KidSport BC recognizes that the pandemic has significantly impacted youth in BC, and we know that sport is a key aspect of their physical and mental health. KidSport BC is proud to provide funds #SoALLKidsCanPlay and we will be working to ensure no child is left on the sidelines during the next phase of COVID-19 recovery.
