that provides financial assistance to kids ages 18 and under, the program
provides grants for registration fees and equipment costs in order to lower
the financial barriers that prevent youth from participating in organized
sports. Further, during the month of October every year, Hyundai dealers
across Canada hold fundraising initiatives to help even more kids play

hockey this year and raised over $400,000 to help even more next year," said
