June 27, 2005 - SaskEnergy and the Roughriders Make Dreams Come True


June 27, 2005

SaskEnergy and the Roughriders
Make Dreams Come True

SaskEnergy and the Saskatchewan Roughriders are proud to announce the beginning of another season for the SaskEnergy Catch for KidSport™ program.

The Roughrider's regular-season opener, Saturday June 25, raised $1,050 toward the program. Throughout the CFL regular season, SaskEnergy will again donate $25 per Roughrider field goal, $25 per offensive pass completion and $100 per touchdown to KidSport™ Saskatchewan.

All funds raised through the program will go directly to KidSport™ Saskatchewan, a charity that helps children from families facing financial obstacles to participate in community sports programs around the Province. Last year the program raised $39,687 enabling 565 kids to participate in sports programs. Since the program's inception in 1998 by Don Narcisse and SaskEnergy, nearly $200,000 has been raised, which has helped more than 2,700 Saskatchewan children.

KidSport™ Saskatchewan has 32 committees across the province that enable less fortunate children to become active in organized sports. Each year, the KidSport™ committees help an average of 3,400 children participate in over 30 different sports and sport camps ranging from archery to wrestling.

Donations can be made to the program by calling 1-800-319-GAME or by visiting the Catch For KidSport™ website at catchforkidsport.saskenergy.com. Pledges can be mailed to the SaskEnergy Catch For KidSport™ Program, c/o KidSport™ Saskatchewan, 1870 Lorne Street, Regina, Saskatchewan, S4P 2L7.
