KidSport Wood Buffalo welcomes Shawn Crites as one of the ambassadors for this year.

But who is he?

Let’s hear it from him.

Hey, I’m Shawn and you can hear me in the mornings on Mix 103.7 FM in Fort McMurray.

I was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia but moved to Regina, Saskatchewan when I was 4 and started playing all the sports. Whether it was football in the summer or hockey in the winter, you could always find me being active in the community. After an extremely short stint (and I mean extremely short) playing football at the university level, I decided to get into radio. I’ve had stops in 100 Mile House – BC, Hinton – Alberta, Prince George – BC and now Fort McMurray! Joining KidSport as an ambassador was such an easy decision for me as being involved in sports at such a young age has helped me grow to be who I am today, and every kid deserves that.

Let’s wish him all the best and if you see him around the community and I bet you will, just say hi!
