Message from Carlene Lewell, Chair of KidSport Delta
From KidSport Delta
We are pleased to announce that the Delta KidSport Gala held the end of April was a huge success and we are able to continue to fund the kids of Delta.  In the past we have been reluctant to advertise the funding opportunities in the fear that we may run out of money.  I am pleased to say that we are comfortable now for our clubs to promote KidSport Funding on their website.  Go to the KidSport Delta webpage www.kidsportbc.ca/delta  for the application. We do ask for registration verification and the verification of the cost from you, the sport organization and we thank each of you for your cooperation.
