Welcome to the 2017 K4K season!
On behalf of Kurling for kids and its hundreds of volunteers, donators, participants and sponsors, I am very happy to welcome you to our new website which marks the opening of K4K 2017 season, our 19th since our humble beginnings in 1999.
As you probably noticed if you went through some of the pages in this site, when we started Kurling for kids 20 years ago, we were only able to raise less than $ 10,000 that year. Through a lot of dedication and hard work over a long period of time, we were able to raise to a staggering $331,000 last year, thanks to the 11 participating curling clubs located in the Montreal area who have joined us over the years.
We had never imagined from the onset that we would go as far as we have. We never thought that we would collect over $2.5 M and help the two Montreal children hospital — the Montreal Children and the CHU Sainte-Justine — with so much needed funding for top-level medical equipement. So much so that we are now looking to do even more.
There are no limits to what we can accomplish: we could double, triple, quadruple the number of curling clubs, participants, donators and so on. Why not? Playing curling is so much fun, and doing so for such a good cause adds to the pleasure of it.
That’s why I am asking you today to do a special effort this year to increase the number of participants, donators and curling clubs so that next year, for our 20th season, we could achieve the $500,000 bar.
Yes we can! I count on your support.
Thank you and have a great curling season.
Robert Sears, Founder & President
