2016 KIDSPORT CALENDAR ON SALE NOW
The 2016 Saskatchewan Roughriders Calendar in support of KidSport Saskatchewan, presented by Harvard Western Insurance, was officially launched today in the Rider Store at Mosaic Stadium in Regina. With 2016 being the final season football will be played at Mosaic Stadium, the calendar takes a look at many of the memorable moments from the stadium’s history.
The calendar is celebrating its 10th year, and has raised more than $1 million for KidSport, a registered charity that helps children from families facing financial obstacles to participate in sport. This year’s version contains memories such as the Labour Classic, the introduction of Gainer the Gopher, George Reed Celebration Day, the Little Miracle at Taylor Field, and winning the Grey Cup championship on our home turf in 2013!
“KidSport is grateful for the support it receives from this fundraiser every year,” said Dorothy Josephson, Chair of KidSport Saskatchewan. “Thanks to the generosity of our title sponsor, Harvard Western Insurance, our corporate partners – Harvard Broadcasting and the Saskatchewan Roughriders Radio Network, and Scotiabank – and, the tremendous support and cooperation of the Saskatchewan Roughriders, KidSport is able to help kids play sports with their friends. If all children have the opportunity to play, learn self-respect, gain self-confidence, adopt active and healthy lifestyles, and realize dreams through sport, then they have a better chance of becoming contributing members and leaders in our communities. ”
“The Saskatchewan Roughriders strongly support KidSport Saskatchewan and are proud to have all proceeds of this calendar go to this organization,” said Saskatchewan Roughriders President and CEO Craig Reynolds. “We believe that no kid should be left on the sidelines and that all youth should be given the opportunity to experience the benefit of organized sports.”
“Harvard Western Insurance (HWI) and our Hill Companies partners are delighted to support this wonderful calendar celebrating the final year of our venerable Taylor Field at Mosaic Stadium,” said Harvard Western Insurance President and CEO David Pettigrew. “We are particularly pleased to support this project as it supports KidSport, which we consider to be a very important cause.”
The calendars are now on sale for $20 at all Rider Stores, participating Scotiabanks, through local KidSport Committees, and online at http://shop.riderville.com. For more information, visit www.kidsport.ca/sk.
