The Sooke News Mirror crew and other staffers within Black Press will be taking part in Jersey Day on Friday to show support for team sports

The event is part of the third annual Sports Day in Canada on Saturday.

“Sports Day in Canada is a national celebration of sport at all levels,” states sportsday.cbc.ca.

On Jersey Day, different community members from municipal employees to students sport jerseys or team uniforms.

Sooke News Mirror staff will be donating $2 each for the opportunity to wear their favourite team jersey for the day.

The proceeds will be donated to Kidsport Victoria, an organization that helps kids from low-income families participate in team sports.

“We’re encouraging all our Black Press sites to participate and the staff to wear their favourite team’s jerseys,” said Black Press Vancouver Island president Mark Warner.

“We encourage all our staff to stay active outside the office, and Kidsport is a well-deserving charity that helps get kids active.”
