Calgary, AB (April 9, 2015) – This past March, Marc Johnson, STEP’s vice president of sales and marketing, officially joined the board of directors for the non-profit organization KidSport where he will hold his position for a three year term.
Marc’s passion for sports and his personal connection to organized games makes him an excellent advocate for KidSport. He hopes his leadership skills and guidance will help KidSport achieve its goal of exposing even more children to the world of organized sport
Johnson believes that, “Teaching kids the value of good sportsmanship goes a long way in shaping their character.” He adds, “Every child should be given the opportunity to participate in a sport, make friends, build up their confidence, and have a bit of fun along the way”.
KidSport is a national not-for-profit organization that provides financial assistance for registration fees and equipment to kids aged 18 and under. Through a confidential application process we provide grants so they can play a season of sport. Nationally, KidSport is comprised of a network of 11 provincial/territorial KidSport chapters and 178 community KidSport chapters. Since its creation in 1993, over 450,000 kids across the country have been given the chance to play sport through KidSport grants and sport introduction programming.
