We are very excited to announce that Shannon Birchard has joined our growing team of KidSport Ambassadors! Shannon currently throws second stones for Team Einarson, the 2020 Scotties Tournament of Hearts Champions. She was also selected as a First-Team All-Star for her solid performance. After winning the 2020 Scotties, Team Einarsons chance at a World Championship ended before a single rock was thrown due to the Global COVID-19 Pandemic.
Shannon is no stranger to KidSport. In 2019, Shannon graced the Women of Curling Calendar as Mrs. August and chose to donate her portion of sales to KidSport Manitoba, getting even more kids off the sidelines and into the game. She was fortunate enough to participate in a variety of sports growing up, and wishes the same for all kids. “I think sport is just such a fantastic thing for children to get involved with. It teaches you so many life lessons in terms of perseverance, teamwork, you get to work towards a goal and really build lifelong friendships being part of a sports team,” Birchard said. “If I can help a few kids get involved in sports through my donation, that’ll make me really happy.”
Stay tuned to find out what events you can find Shannon at!
