youth sports groups to assist in covering the registration costs of local athletes. That compares to about $25,000 to Sept. 1, 2011. Jackson anticipates the Richmond chapter of KidSport will distribute more than $50,000 by the end of this year, though it is still waiting on significant corporate donations in excess of $10,000. Currently, Richmond KidSport will contribute a maximum of $250 per child per year to help
cover the registration fee (for sports sanctioned by Sport BC), but Jackson fears that may have to be rolled back to $150 per child if more donations are not forthcoming or the demand becomes too great. “It’s good corporate citizens that are helping (these) kids to be physically active in the community,” said Jackson, noting the City of Richmond contributed $6,200 this year. Applications or donations may be sent to Box
162, 185-9040 Blundell Rd. V6Y 1K3. Application forms are also available at any Richmond community centre or downloaded on the city website at richmond.ca or the Richmond Sports Council website at richmondspor tscouncil. com. KidSport’s mission is to help families overcome financial barriers so that all kids have the opportunity to participate in organized sport and experience the benefits of active living.
In its four-year history, the Richmond chapter of KidSport has consistently had more applications than the year before, averaging an increase of between 25 to 35 per cent per annum. •Friday, Oct. 19 will be KidSport BC Night at BC Place Stadium with $3 from every $33 end zone ticket sold for the Canadian Football League game between the BC Lions and Edmonton Eskimos going to the local chapter of KidSport.
