The Sunshine Coast Community Chapter of KidSport was officially launched in November, 2008 and to date has supported over 46 kids on the Sunshine Coast in registration fees for organized sports. The KidSport Chapter provides up to $200 in registration fees for a child in one sport in one calendar year. KidSport Sunshine Coast is able to increase the number of kids from Port Mellon to Earls Cove who will be taking to the fields and rinks this year, as a result of the generosity of the Rotarians on the Sunshine Coast. Sam Simpson, President of the Rotary Club of Gibsons, presented Co-Chair Carol Duff with a cheque in the amount of $2,000 at a recent Rotary meeting. This contribution was designated as a community donation from the Club. Carol Duff comments, "I feel very proud about living in a community that supports our local youth! The Rotarians' generosity is going to help at least 10 more kids on the Coast So ALL Kids Can Play!" KidSport is a national program and the realization of programs and funding lies in the hands of the community. KidSport BC oversees 28 Community Chapters, like KidSport Sunshine Coast, and has 260 direct volunteers who work tirelessly to provide opportunities for children all over the province to get in the game.
