Pembina Pipeline Corporation announces new partnership with KidSport

Pembina Pipeline Corporation (“Pembina”) has joined Team KidSport to help make it so all kids can play. Pembina recently announced their new $450,000 partnership with KidSport Alberta.

The sponsorship will help more than 1,800 kids across Alberta get off the sidelines and into a season of sport over the next three years.

The partnership will also distribute funds to individual KidSport chapters, including Ponoka, as well as create a specific fund within KidSport for Indigenous communities.

“At Pembina, we invest in programs that help build healthier communities,” said Allan Charlesworth, Pembina vice president of technical services. “Speaking from personal experience, I know that sports can play such an important role in a kid’s life, impacting everything from physical and mental health to relationships and confidence.”

“The commitment made today by Pembina will change the lives of kids in communities across Alberta by giving them the opportunity to play sports,” said Greg Ingalls, KidSport Alberta executive director. “The life skills and healthy habits learned through sport will enhance their lives and teach them devices that they will use into their adult years.”

KidSport is a national non-profit organization that helps children participate in sports by removing the financial barriers that prevent youth from participating in organized sport.
