Fort McMurray Fire Fundraiser

Fort McMurray Fire Fundraiser in Vancouver

KidzFirst Canada Board member Jeremy Irla, who is from Fort McMurray, and his partner Nils Johan Hognestad , are organizing this Fort McMurray Fire Fundraiser with the specific goal of raising money to help youth sports organizations that have lost equipment, supplies, and uniforms to the fire that has destroyed so much.

Jeremy has just returned from making sure his family & friends are doing okay. KidzFirst Canada will be making a donation of $1000 to support the young people of the Fort Mac fires to empower them, and help them fulfill their sporting goals. I hope you will consider making a donation at or attend the event. The KidzFirst Canada Board would appreciate it.

The Give It Up For Kidz Challenge

Every day there are young people that go without an opportunity to experience, succeed, taste or reach their goals of empowerment. Everyday young people all over Canada face unimaginable challenges, are bullied, told they can’t, or make sacrifices.
From February 15th-29th KidzFirst Canada Board Members are going to experience a small fraction of what it means for vulnerable youth to go with out, and face tough situations.  For a two week period the KidzFirst Canada Board Members have chosen specific challenges that they will either give up something routine & important in their lives and/or do something that they have not done before that is out of their comfort zone.
Give it for Kidz Challenge Board Members
This is a small token of understanding and sacrifice that can’t measure up to the day to day  challenges vulnerable youth endure , but we are hoping you will join the KidzFirst Canada “Give it Up 4 Kidz! Challenge” by donating online, or on behalf of a Board Member by clicking here.
Money raised will go to supporting existing and new after-school and vulnerable youth initiatives all over Canada!
