The 9th Annual Operation Red Nose campaign was another huge success and KidSport Battlefords received a cheque for $13,200 from the campaign. During the past 5 years they have received $60,156 in total. KidSport isn't the only one who benefits from this campaign. 255 people were provided safe rides in the area with an amazing 32 volunteers who stepped up to the plate. 1,308 Saskatchewan people were driven home by volunteers in their famous red vests. It's a win-win situation. Thank you to all the volunteers and sponsors who made this campaign a huge success.

As Co-chair of KidSport Battlefords. This donation is absolutely amazing, and we are thrilled to partner with Lions annually for the great initiative/fundraiser.
In 2017 KidSport Battlefords helped 410 local kids participate in sports; and granted out over $80,000 to local organizations. Without donations like this from The North Battleford Lions Club and Operation Red Nose, none of this would be possible!
