Teams Registration Climbing
 
 
Preparations for the first ever KidSport Fun & Fitness Corporate Challenge in Prince Albert are underway. The local KidSport Fundraising Committee is hosting the challenge at the Alfred Jenkins Field House. As the      name implies, the event aims to bring the business community together in a fun way to raise money for local kids.
 
Corporations, businesses, organizations, civil services, and service clubs are invited to take part in the KidSport Fun & Fitness Corporate Challenge.
 
The team-building event is a positive networking opportunity designed to promote fun, fitness, and comradeship among co-workers. Teams are comprised of eight people, with a minimum of three of each gender. The groups will battle against one another for points and compete in eight or more sports and fitness challenges throughout the day. The event also allows adults experience the benefits of participating in fitness activities similar to the sports KidSport help to fund for youth. Sports such as soccer, beach volleyball, touch football, and pickle ball will be part of the day’s activities.
 
The goal of the Prince Albert KidSport Fundraising Committee is to have 20 teams compete in the day-long challenge.
 
We have 14 confirmed teams from the community. They range from private businesses, police, corrections, an auto-body shop, the PA Ski Club, Outlaws Lacrosse, Kinsmen Club, Kinette Club, and many more.
 
Prince Albert’s Fun & Fitness Corporate Challenge will take place Saturday, May 26th, during national KidSport month. All of the participants’ food for the day is included in the registration fees. The day begins with registration at 8:30 am and concludes with a buffet supper and awards presentation. Teams can registrar with a committee member or online at: http://www.kidsportcanada.ca/saskatchewan/
 
Numerous communities across Canada have hosted Fun & Fitness Corporate Challenges for years. Regina KidSport has held the event for 22 years. Saskatoon KidSport has held seven and also gearing up to host another one this year. All of the money raised at corporate challenge events stays in the community where it was raised and is used to pay sports registration fees for local children who qualify for funding under a confidential application process. KidSport Prince Albert is part of the national KidSport organization. The non-profit charity was created in 1993 and operates in 166 communities.
