Congratulations to our newest Kid Hero, eight year old Bennett Brown! Bennett plays hockey for Glenlake Hawks Novice Minor 3 Blue in Southwest Calgary, and his coach Aaron nominated him for the award for his enthusiasm, “From day one of the season Bennett has been the most excited kid before every practice or game.  He is the first one to the huddles in practice and is always listening while we talk.  He takes the lead in practice and is always at the front of the line for drills”.

L-R: Jeff Shepherd from Comrie’s Sports Equipment Bank, Tonia Brown, Bennett Brown, Coach Aaron Helsa, and Chelsea Ince from KidSport Calgary

Bennett won a pizza party, a medal, plus gift certificates for himself, his parents and his coach. The Wood Automotive Group also donates $250 to Kidsport and $250 to Comrie’s Sports Equipment Bank each month.

The Wood Automotive Group Kid Hero initiative is open for nominations for forthcoming months, recognizing young athletes for their enthusiasm, spirit and commitment to fair play. Download a nomination form here
