Nick is out raising funds

Variety believes children who have special needs can achieve victories every day

On Oct. 1, Campbell River’s Nicholas King began fundraising to help children who have special needs through the Variety’s Kid Champions program.

Variety believes children who have special needs can achieve victories every day and be leaders in their community, building teams of supporters and inspiring others to help Variety help more children.

King was born with Down syndrome. Even tasks like walking have always been difficult for Nick due to his low muscle strength. Variety provided funding for an adapted bicycle which helped him to strengthen his muscles and build stamina.

There are many ways to support Nick: by donating at the Variety coin boxes in all IGA, BMO and Buy-Low locations; donating online to the champions’ fundraising pages at variety.bc.ca; or becoming a corporate sponsor raising funds through your business or by matching community donations.
