Toss a Frisbee to help kids participate in sport

Teck and KidSport have organized a frisbee toss at a Trail Smoke Eater's game with proceeds going to Trail Kidsport charity.

KidSport and Teck are teaming up with the Trail Smoke Eaters this weekend to keep the momentum going in what has been a successful inaugural year for the Trail chapter.

At the Smokies’ game on Sunday, rather than a puck toss, KidSport and Teck have organized a Frisbee toss between the second and third periods, with proceeds going to the Trail KidSport charity that help kids play sports.

For a toonie or donation, fans are invited to throw the flying discs onto the ice, and the ones closest to the middle will win prizes that include a signed Smokie jersey, passes to the Royal Theatre and aquatic centre and more, says KidSport director Betty Ann Marino.

“It’s a great way for people to make a contribution and have some fun.”

In conjunction with Teck’s kid zone, the company is donating the Frisbees to help promote Kidsport and its success.

“It’s all in the name of wellness and this is just a great way to add us in and once again demonstrate their (Teck’s) commitment to the community,” said Marino.

Since September, Kidsport has helped 25 kids register for 11 different sports, an impressive number for such a short time.
