In February, Canadian Tire Corporation announced an additional $12 million commitment to Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund to help sport and recreation organizations build back sport and play in Canada.
Jumpstart conducted a State of Sport study via Ipsos which revealed the pandemic has not only impacted current access to sport and play but has real long-term effects as well. PAMBA and the communities it serves have experienced the impact of the pandemic first-hand.
We recently received confirmation that we will be provided with grant support through the last round of Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund. We are beyond grateful to receive this news and know the positive impact it will have on sport and recreation organizations, and ultimately, on kids across the country.
Thanks to Jumpstart our 17 teams are able replacement safety gear which includes: Catchers Helmets, Chest Protectors and Leg Guards. In addition, our umpires on 7 diamonds will be protected with new face masks, chest protectors and leg guards.
