Ryker Morrell is a 9th grade student at Winston Churchill High School, and the Founder and President of a non-profit charity in Lethbridge called Bottles4Boulet.
Bottles4Boulet raised over $2,500 in their first year which translated into 11 local children being able to play sports that they may not have been able to otherwise. All Bottles4Boulet proceeds go to the KidSport Lethbridge Taber Logan Boulet fund ‘So ALL kids can play’!
