Girls & GRIT

Girls and GRIT is a collaborative fundraising initiative between KidSport Edmonton and the Paralympic Sports Association that empowers girls to participate in sport by removing barriers so more girls can play.

About the event:
This is a really cool event that’s supporting a great partnership between two awesome non-profit-organizations KidSport Edmonton & Paralympic Sports Association.
This family friendly event is a very cool way to get active with your kid as Nike joins us to host our gym session on the courts at Saville, so pack your runners!
Bring your son, daughter, nephew; get active together and chat about the importance of movement.
After the session with Nike, we’ll refuel with light refreshments while learning about how you can empower girls participation in sport in your community. Through a mini-hot stove led by Mark Connolly with athletes like Olympic Bobsleigh Pilot, Alysia Rissling, you’ll leave feeling inspired by local athlete stories and how sport impacted their lives.
