In September, Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities announced an $8 million sport relief fund to help sport and recreation organizations continue to deliver programming in 2020 and beyond.
As you may be aware, many community organizations have shut their doors due to the financial burden created by COVID-19, including lost revenue and increased program costs. The Pickering Football Club has experienced the impact of the pandemic first-hand.
We recently received confirmation that we are amongst 668 sport and recreation organizations nationally to be provided with grant support through Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund. We are beyond grateful to receive this news and know how positive an impact it will have on sport and recreation organizations, and ultimately, on kids across the country.
With Jumpstart’s support, we’ll be able to offer children and youth with intellectual and/or physical disabilities an opportunity to participate in specially designed recreational opportunities. Every child deserves a chance to build lasting friendships, make memories and feel like they belong. The All Abilities team strives for an inclusive environment where no child is noticed for their disability, rather, their enormous abilities shine.
On behalf our program athletes, families, volunteers and staff - Thank you Jumpstart!
