The Saskatoon KidSport committee is hosting its annual Family Mini Golf
Tournament at Market Mall on February 9, 2014
. The event runs from
11:00am until 5pm. Families are encouraged to come out and play a round
of mini golf for $24.00/group of four with all proceeds going to KidSport! No pre
registration is required, just come out an have some fun. There are
lots of great prizes and some of our local sport celebrities will be in
attendance including the Saskatoon Blades, U of S Huskies and the
Saskatoon Hilltops.

KidSport™ is a children’s charity dedicated to assisting children of
families facing financial obstacles to participate in community sport

We believe that no kid should be left on the sidelines and all should be
given the opportunity to experience the positive benefits of organized
sports. KidSport™ provides support to children in order to remove
financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sport.

All kids should be given the opportunity to develop healthy lifestyles,
no matter the financial barriers that may exist. Staying physically
active helps encourage children to maintain healthy habits throughout
their whole lives. The challenges that come with playing sports also
teach children valuable life lessons and skills including leadership,
hard work, dedication and self-confidence.
