The KidSport program flourishes through a network of 40 community chapters across BC. Each community chapter is run by a committed group of volunteers who raise and distribute funds in their community. For KidSport, every dollar raised in a community stays in the community because we believe in the power of sport to make our communities in BC stronger!

Host a Fundraiser
KidSport is also a great way to bring your workplace together: Events like Jeans/Jersey Fridays, holiday parties, client appreciation BBQs, baseball tournaments, and office hockey pools are all made better by adding a charitable component. Donate a portion or all of the proceeds to KidSport BC.
