Will Kristman Memorial Trust once again donated $2000 to KidSport Wood Buffalo.
This donation came during the week-long Penalty Box campaign pushing our funds to the goal and helping us to surpass it significantly.
Will was born in Fort McMurray, AB on December 13, 2003, to Hilda and Will Kristman and big sister Katie. Will was lucky enough to land in a place with a big spirit and heart made of kids, parents, teachers, coaches, and neighbours – a community full of those whom he would come to know as future friends and teammates. He played soccer with Fort McMurray Youth Soccer and was part of the downhill ski team at Vista Ridge.
William Lewis Kristman, died suddenly from an undiagnosed and unknown heart condition on February 9, 2013 at the age of nine. At the time of Will’s death, a trust fund was established in his memory. The trust was a way to recognize those things we loved about Will and promote these qualities for the benefit of our community. The Will Kristman Memorial Trust is funded entirely by donations from community members, friends and family. Fort McMurray businesses have supported the trust from early on and continue to this day.
In his family’s words: “We are honoured to build a relationship with KidSport Wood Buffalo in support of youth in our community… in memory of a little boy who took everything life had to offer.
Loved always, forever missed,
Mom, Dad and Katie”
We thank the Kristman family from the bottom of our hearts and continue to help more kids in need to keep his legacy alive.
