Nelson’s KidSport held a special ceremony at the Nelson Leafs game on February 1 to recognize and thank all of its supporters.

The event featured a social gathering before the game as well as a recognition ceremony — between the first and second period — on the ice at the NDCC.

By the end of the year it is estimated that KidSport will have raised more than $100,000 and helped more than 700 kids play sports in the Nelson area.
