One in three Canadian families cannot afford to enroll their kids in organized sports and physical activity (Vision Critical, 2011) which means many kids are missing out on the benefits that come with organized play. Canadian Tire Jumpstart is a nationally registered charity dedicated to removing financial barriers so kids across Canada have the opportunity to get off the sidelines and into the game.
Whether it’s the chance to try a sport for the very first time or to continue with a favourite physical activity, Jumpstart makes it possible for all kids to participate. We see it as equipping kids for life because quality physical activity in kids does more than improve health and well-being. It helps build confidence, leadership, productivity and creativity.
On this night, we'll raise funds to help put over 1000 local youth into sports this year. Over $75,000 has been raised over the past 5 years and annually Jumpstart puts over 850 local Peterborough kids into sports and recreation!
You can support us by buying a ticket to the game as the Peterborough Petes take on the Ottawa 67's then taking part in the Kawartha Chrysler Chuck a Ball - your chance to WIN “BIG” at the game ($500 CT gift card, $200 and $100 mark’s gift cards) PLUS a full silent auction including: Signed Men’s 2014 Team Canada Champion Olympic jersey, Signed Jonathan Toews Jersey, Signed Hayley Wickenheiser Jersey, Signed Codi Ceci Jersey, Lots of kids sporting equipment and much more.
