Former Winnipeg Jet 1.0 Bobby Hull was in St. Louis earlier this week to make a presentation to Winnipeg Jets 2.0 Mark Scheifele. And it was a cheque for 10 thousand dollars, made out to KidSport Winnipeg, who Scheifele represents as an Athlete Ambassador.
The donation from the Bobby Hull Foundation will provide financial assistance for registration fees for disadvantaged children who otherwise might not be able to participate in sports.
“The Bobby Hull Foundation for Children is proud to support KidSport Winnipeg and to know that we are helping give kids the chance to participate in sports.” said Hull.
Hull, and a number of other participants from Winnipeg, were in St. Louis as part of the Foundation’s first fundraising event which included the opportunity to attend the Winnipeg Jets vs St. Louis Blues hockey game Tuesday Night.
“On behalf of KidSport Winnipeg I’d like to thank Bobby and his foundation for their generous donation,” said Scheifele. “It’s great to know more kids in Winnipeg will be given the chance to be a part of a team and play a sport they love.”
