KidSport and In the Pressure of the Moment: Remembering Gerry McNeil
On Tuesday, February 21st, 2017 David McNeil donated $500 from the proceeds of the book to KidSport / Sport Jeunesse, as the first instalment of an agreement to give the organization $1 for every book sold.
KidSport / Sport Jeunesse is a national not-for-profit organization that provides financial assistance for registration fees and equipment to kids aged 18 and under. Nationally, KidSport is comprised of a network of 11 provincial/territorial KidSport chapters and 178 community KidSport chapters. Since its creation in 1993, over 530,000 kids across the country have been given the chance to play sport through KidSport grants and sport introduction programming.
Author, David McNeil, and publisher, Midtown Press, are hopeful that subsequent instalments will be substantially more. In the Pressure of the Moment offers a retrospective look at how differently we experience the NHL from those in the early 1950s, and interest in this subject is likely to grow as more people become aware of the NHL’s 100 anniversary.
