BC Place lights up yellow for KidSport Week

September 11th, 2018

BC Place will glow yellow on Tuesday, September 11th, in support of KidSport Week 2018.

Did you know 1 in 3 families can’t afford to register their children in sport, and only 7% of Canadian children and youth are meeting Canada’s guidelines of 60 minutes of physical activity a day? For 25 years, KidSport has been helping address the challenges faced by many families when registering their children in organized sport.

KidSport Week is designed to enhance the profile of KidSport across the province and to ensure that British Columbians realize the importance of ensuring that all kids get the chance to play organized sport.
