Join us for Canadian Tire Jumpstart #JumpstartDay Twitter Party May 28th

May 23, 2014

Sports activities were always an important part of growing up for me, I was lucky to have the opportunity to participate – I looked forward to my gymnastics classes all the time . Having gymnastics as a foundation helped when I wanted to join cheer leading in High School, but the best thing I took away from participating was the support I got from my fellow gymnasts, the sense of teamwork. Although we competed individually, we were a team and were there to support each other all the time, I made great friends and helped build my confidence at the same time.

Did you know that 1 in 3 Canadian kids can’t play the sports they want to because of financial barriers.

Canadian Tire Jumpstart is a national charity  that helps financially disadvantaged families give their kids the opportunity to participate in organized sport and recreation. Jumpstart helps cover registration fees, equipment and/or transportation costs.

Since the inception in 2005, Canadian Tire Jumpstart has given more than 720,000 kids across Canada the chance to play. Canadian Tire Jumpstart is dedicated to removing financial barriers, so children can participate in organized sport and recreation.

Jumpstart’s signature fundraising campaign, the Jumpstart Red Ball campaign has been taking place throughout the month of May. The month-long program raises donations, with 100% of the funds staying in the community in which they are raised. Canadian Tire stores and their partners invite customers to support kids in their local community by making a $2 donation in exchange for a little red Jumpstart ball.
