BEND, OR (June 1, 2023) – Every Kid Sports, the award-winning national 501(c)(3) nonprofit that helps children from income-restricted families play youth sports, has declared June “Youth Sports Equity Month.” The campaign will raise awareness about the cost-prohibitive nature of youth sports, with just 22% of children from underserved communities able to participate . This discrepancy can have a dramatic impact on a child’s developmental skills, physically, mentally and socially.
