My name is Michelle; I'm teaming up with Baylea Wilkins Fitness and some friends to raise BIG money for KidSport BC. I have agreed to do 1,000 burpees on August 1st in an effort to help my team reach our goal of $100,000!
I grew up playing sports and am forever grateful for the physical, emotional and mental skills it provided me. These skills have helped me (and continue to serve me) throughout my life, not just in sport but also in my relationships, my schooling and my career. I can honestly say that I wouldn't be the same person I am today if i hadn't played sport growing up. I cannot imagine not having the opportunity to play and want to help kids in that position get in the game.
The reality is that cost keeps 1 in 3 Canadian kids out of organized sport, especially kids from marginalized or remote communities. That’s where KidSport comes in.
