We are delighted to share that our first ever Athletics for Kids GAME ON virtual gala was a roaring success. For those who joined us, we hope you could feel the energy of the night, and that our special guests made you laugh a little, cry a little, dance a little and get inspired to make our communities a bit stronger, healthier, more inclusive, and more connected.
The event has raised close to $150,000 to make sure deserving families all over the Province have the opportunity to enroll their kids in sports, and experience the massive benefits that flow when that happens! Kids need their sports more than ever now, and so many of the children we support do not get a chance to partake without our funding.
Special thanks to our amazing MC team of 5 time Olympian, Charmaine Crooks and local host, auctioneer and philanthropist Howard Blank, who brought the evening to life and kept us entertained and inspired!
Massive thanks to all our event sponsors, and to all participants, and donors- we are so very grateful for your support and for standing by us through this pandemic. And to our production company “Media Button”, who did a fantastic job compiling all the segments and “herding the cats”! As well, huge thanks to all the celebrities and special guests who provided us with their stories and videos of encouragement and inspiration as well as humour and energy!!
