ALBERTA – RBC has committed to donate $2 to KidSport Alberta for every powerplay goal scored during the 2022-23 AJHL season.
RBC’s donation will result in kids all over Alberta benefitting from grant funding to cover registration fees for participation in their sport.
“We’re thrilled to be selected as beneficiaries of this initiative between RBC and the AJHL,” said Kelly Oehlerking, KidSport Alberta Interim Executive Director. “This partnership will help even more kids participate in sports across our province. It’s so important because we know the opportunity to participate in sports can teach valuable skills and develop self confidence that will help kids through the rest of their lives.”
