Kai is 12 years old. He has been involved with 5-pin bowling through Youth Bowling Council (YBC) Ontario for 8 years and is in his second year at Junior Level. Each year the Bowling Proprietors Association and the Blue Jays Cares Foundation team together to raise funds for a worthy cause and bowlers participate in the fundraising. This year that cause was "Special Olympics". Kai was the highest single fundraiser in all of Ontario with a grand total raised of $1,208.00. The money raised will support Special Olympics programs in our community and across Ontario.
