Congratulations to our newest Kid Hero, Peris Jones from the Calgary Adrenaline Rush 03 U16 Team! Peris was nominated for her leadership skills and volunteering with the U12 team by her coach, Jason Dousett, “Peris is often found at our training facility very early in the morning, or well after her practice time is over, to assist the coaches of the u12 team. All of the younger girls love working with Peris and look up to her as a role model.”

Peris won a pizza party, a medal, plus gift certificates for herself, her parents and coach. The Wood Automotive Group also donated $250 to Kidsport and $250 to Comrie’s Sports Equipment Bank in Peris’s name.

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
