About Us

Play it Forward Kids is a non-profit organization focused on helping kids in our communities with a Gold Medal vision of making their sporting dreams come true. Our goal at Play it Forward Kids is to enable and encourage children facing difficult situations to get involved in sports and find renewed hope by being active and having fun.

The concept of Play it Forward Kids comes from the movie "Pay it Forward". In this movie, 11 year old kids are challenged by their teacher to come up with a way to change the world. Trevor's Idea is simple, you must help three people, and they must "Pay it Forward" to three others, and they have to do it for three more, but it has to be something really big, something they can't do by themselves.

Every year with the help of well known community organizations ”Play it Forward Kids” has been able to meet with children within the Montreal and surrounding areas to buy them hockey / sports equipment at Mullins Sports in Greenfield Park. Thanks to our faithful sponsors each year we are able to increase the number of Children and Families that are blessed with these custom sports packages.

In addition to purchasing custom sports packages “Play it Forward Kids” has also worked with and has helped support various community programs within the Greater Montreal area by organizing special events and outings to sporting venues.

In 2011 “Play it Forward Kids” launched a new program called “The Gold Medal Dreamer” . The Gold Medal Dreamer program was established to enable us to grant a sports dream to a child who has faced physical, emotional, or social challenges in their young life. Since it’s launch , our Team has been able to grant several wishes such as Zamboni rides at an NHL game, Horse back riding lessons and so many more…

Thanks to our committed Volunteers and faithful sponsors, “Play it Forward Kids” is helping change one child’s life at a time.
