Naik recently turned 7 years old and at his glow-in-the-dark golf birthday party, he asked guests to bring a toonie to donate to KidSport instead of bringing gifts. When asked why he chose KidSport Naik replied "because I want to help other kids play sports". This isn't the first time Naik has put other kids first, he also donated birthday money to KidSport last year.

As this is the final week of the Give the Gift of Sport campaign, KidSport would like to thank Naik and all of our supporters who have donated to KidSport over the holiday season.

Since its creation in 1993, KidSport has helped over 600,000 kids from coast to coast to coast receive grants and sport introduction programming, thanks to the help of the Government of Canada, national corporate partners like CIBC, Jays Care Foundation, Oxford Learning and the generosity of Canadian donors. There is new demand each year, however, and KidSport can make a bigger impact with your help by donating to the Give the Gift of Sport campaign. 

Every donation counts and will contribute to making a difference in a child’s life. An average donation of $250 can provide one child a full season of sport—the type of gift that will last well beyond the holidays. Make your contribution today to Give the Gift of Sport at KidSport.ca/GiftofSport, where personal, corporate or tribute donations can be directed to any of KidSport’s 178 community chapters.
