Nelson and area residents will have a chance to see a team of locals take on the Montreal Canadians Alumni team in January, part of a fundraiser being hosted by Make A Change Canada.

Executive Director of Make A Change Canada Ann Marie Edgar says it's will kick off their 15 year anniversary celebrations.

Based in Nelson, Make A Change Canada is a national nonprofit and charitable organization that provides online employment, self-employment, and skills training to people who face barriers to employment in today's labour market...it started off locally through BC and Central Kootenay Community Futures, but has expanded to a national program.

Money raised goes to open additional learning opportunities for local residents in their online web development and design program, and a portion of the proceeds will be to adaptive sports programming for children and youth in the community.
