Dave Green

2019 Dedication Award - Nova Scotia/Halifax



Nominator Comments:

Dave is a dedicated Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) who founded FUNSports to help kids from marginalized communities gain access to a wider range of sports.

The inspiration came when he helped a long-term friend raise her two sons in Uniake Square. He quickly recognized that there was a lack of funding for underprivileged communities when it came to any other sport than basketball. His vision was to create an organization that could fund whole teams, including fees, equipment and transportation.

Since then, Dave and a group of fellow RMTs have been raising funds by offering free clinical service at sporting events, in exchange for the funds raised through the events’ 50/50 draws.

This has allowed FUNSports to provide new sports opportunities for kids in these local communities, nurturing their teamwork, talent and independence.

Have you been helped by a human service champion? We would love to hear about it.
