December 2015

Holiday greetings from all of the Staff and Directors at Athletics 4 Kids.  We have had a very busy and productive 2015 year with over 800 sports grants distributed to kids all over BC, and some exciting new changes and growth afoot!  At a time when world issues and conflict have dominated so much over the past few months, we truly appreciate all the amazing support we have received from so many of you, to help families here in BC who are struggling to make ends meet. We are all fortunate to live in a part of the world where it is safe for our children, where opportunities abound and there is community support for those in need. We wish you and your families a very safe & Happy Holiday Season!  Thank you for being part of the a4k family!

Thank You Vancouver Canucks Alumni Foundation

Once again, the Canucks Alumni have come through in support of Athletics for Kids; we recently received a gift of $5,000 to support our youth sports grants, and putting kids into hockey programs.  The Canucks Alumni have been supporting a4k for a number of years, and have  put tens of kids into hockey through the past few years.  Special thanks to a4k ambassador Dave Babych, and to Gerry Sillers and Dennis Kearns for orchestrating this gift.

Holiday Giving with A4K

Get involved now and make a child’s wish come true; give them the opportunity to play on the team! A4K has currently raised just over $8,000. The goal this December is to reach $12,000. Help A4K reach it's goal!

A4K also encourages and appreciates when donors make a gift on a monthly basis. $20 puts a child in swimming, $30 a child in soccer, $40 a child in martial arts, $50 a child in gymnastics, and $100 a child in hockey for 1 month. You can make a valuable and lasting impact month after month by simply filling out the monthly donation tab on the attached link. 
We put kids in sports. They put themselves in the game.

Thank you to all of the individuals who have donated to A4K's Holiday Giving campaign so far this year. Your support is very much appreciated!!
