With only a few days left before the CBC Mini Battle of the Blades competition in Langton on Tuesday, Oct. 29, the Langton Skating Club announced a portion of the event proceeds will be donated to Norfolk KidSport.
“It is fitting to donate to an organization that believes no kid should be left on the sidelines and all should be given the opportunity to experience the positive benefits of organized sports,” said Chris Denn, president of the Langton Skating Club, in a media release.
KidSport provides support to children to help remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sports. Donations made by those in attendance on the 29th will directly benefit children in the Norfolk community.
“It will continue to help kids participate in sports, encourage them to sign up and help parents have the opportunity to register their children for sports they never thought possible,” said Lisa Girard, Active Living Coordinator for Norfolk County.
“What better way for our own Mini Blades skaters to show their support than to give back to other children who dream of participating in sports,” added Denn.
The Mini Battle of the Blades competition will be held at the Langton Arena, Tuesday, Oct. 29, at 7 p.m. and will be open to the general public.
