The Little Kinger Fund is a non-profit organization established for the purpose of collecting and distributing funds to provide opportunities for girls to participate in athletics. The founder is Kristin King who played on the US Women’s Olympic Hockey team in the 2006 Winter Games in Torino, Italy where she earned a bronze medal. Hockey has enriched Kristin’s life in many ways. It has opened doors and allowed her to go places and do things that she never dreamed. It is her heart’s desire to give something back to the game, and give back to her community, by helping to provide some of those same opportunities for others. Kristin excelled to the highest level in women’s hockey but she was also a multiple sport athlete in her high school and college years and did well academically.
