Child in Need: Nine-year-old is ready for indoor and outdoor fun


Nine-year-old is ready for indoor and outdoor fun

Kristie, a 9-year-old girl from Brainerd, describes herself as “liking math and computers” but after meeting her you will find out she likes many more activities. Kristie is a very active, happy, outgoing and friendly little girl who enjoys bike riding, figure skating, sledding, drawing, painting and reading to name just a few of her interests.

Kristie is in third grade at Harrison Elementary School and lives with her mom and two brothers — one younger and one older. With Kristie’s active and open mind, she is ready for fun both indoors and outdoors. Does being a mentor for Kristie sound like a good fit for you?
