KIJHL and Subway team up to help KidSport

Altogether $24,000 was raised to help Kidsport BC.

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks teamed up with the rest of the KIJHL and Subway to raise funds for  KidSport this season.

The Hawks donated $500 to the cause after local players pitched in to make sandwiches for patrons at the Fruitvale and Trail Subway franchises last month.

In addition, Subway restaurants and the KIJHL teamed up in the 2013/14 season to support Kidsport BC. Subway donated $10 for every home power-play goal scored by the Hawks.

Altogether the KIJHL raised $24,000 for the charity that helps young athletes participate in local sports.

At Game 2 of the playoff series between Kamloops and Beaver Valley,  KIJHL President Bill Ohlhausen and Kamloops Subway franchise owner Grayden Flanagan presented KidSport Kamloops chair Scott Andruschak with the donation.

“This is a shining example of local business and organized sport taking ownership of an issue in their community and helping KidSport to ensure that every kid has the chance to play. Last year in BC, KidSport helped over 1,100 kids to play a season of hockey and this donation will help us to meet that demand and sets a shining example for other businesses and sport organizations to follow”, said Pete Quevillon, Director KidSport.

KidSport Trail has helped 28 athletes participate, funding over $5,000 for registration in nine different sports organizations. For more information on accessing the program, or to donate or become a partner, go to  www.kidsporttrail.ca.
