Canadians are passionate about sports, but for children and youth, participation in team sports has been identified by Canadian health experts as a great way to improve physical and mental health, as well as learn self-discipline, teamwork and leadership by example.
Andrew Williams, CEO of DHL Express Canada, says “As a supporter of sports around the world, DHL understands that these skills translate to all aspects of life.” He believes today’s youth sports leaders will help Canada thrive in the future.
DHL Express Canada, the official logistics sponsor of Rugby World Cup, is celebrating youth leadership through sports by awarding one lucky Canadian child or youth aged eight to 15 with an experience of a lifetime.
A contest launched by DHL, will host the winner and his or her guardian at the Rugby World Cup 2015 in England and Wales. The winner will become part of rugby history, delivering the official match ball onto the field for the Ireland vs. Canada match.
