The KidSport Back to Sport with Viterra project launched to ensure that kids have an opportunity to run, jump, learn and play through sport. The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on families have increased the financial barriers associated with sport. In the month of August, Viterra will match all donations to KidSport Saskatchewan up to $5,000 to get kids off the sidelines and into the game. Money raised stays in each local Saskatchewan community.
Viterra is also challenging other Saskatchewan organizations to get involved.
“Viterra is proud to continue supporting KidSport through their Return to Sport campaign,” said Kyle Jeworski, CEO of Viterra North America. “We strongly believe in the importance of kids playing sports to cultivate their skills and support their physical and mental wellbeing. We encourage everyone who can, to make a contribution and join us in helping bring sports back across the province.”
“We’re grateful to have the opportunity to partner with a Saskatchewan-based company to help kids all over the province,” said Jerry Shoemaker, Provincial KidSport Committee Chair. “By giving kids the chance to experience the power of sport, we are providing them with the opportunities to learn skills and lessons that can help them throughout their lives.”
