Hockey legend Bobby Hull has made a $10,000 donation to KidSport Winnipeg on behalf of his foundation.
The cheque from the Bobby Hull Foundation was presented to Winnipeg Jets forward Mark Scheifele on Tuesday in St. Louis. Scheifele is a KidSport athlete ambassador.
“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, along with a number of other participants from Winnipeg, was 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.
