Spreading sport

Crescent Park Elementary’s Lowell McLaughlin

Four Crescent Park Elementary students kicked off a sporting-goods fundraiser at their school last week.

The Grade 7s – members of leadership group Games and Athletics – are now collecting used sporting items such as cleats, soccer balls, shin pads and other equipment in good condition for shipment to El Salvador.

The classmates launched the initiative April 6 at a school assembly that featured a presentation by Vancouver firefighter Brian Hutchinson of Engines for El Salvador, which ships decommissioned B.C. fire engines to the Central American country.

Athletic equipment in good condition can be dropped off at the school, 2440 128 St., until June.
