“So all Kids Can Play.”

That is the KidSport tag line.

The new Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows chapter of KidSport is excited about the Rotary Duck Race, July 31.

The first $25,000 raised through this fundraiser will go to KidSport to help offset registration costs so every child to age 18 can participate in local organized sports.

Kidsport is a community funded group receiving no government funding.

If you are a sport organization or youth organization, you can get a double kick at this fundraiser.

First, if your organization qualifies, by selling ducks you could be eligible to receive a minimum of 50 per cent of the funds you raise selling the ducks.

Second, if your organization qualifies, you can benefit from Kidsport in offsetting the registration costs of children with financial barriers.

“This is a win-win fundraiser, so get involved and help more children in our communities play,” organizers said.
