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. It’s no secret that Triathlon BC and Human Powered Racing have experienced the impact of the pandemic first-hand.
We are excited to share that Human Powered Racing has partnered with Triathlon BC in delivering youth specific programming to South Island participants. Through the @CTJumpstart program, community sport organizations like ours continue to provide access to sport and play for Canadian kids. The Canadian Tire JumpStart program will go a long way towards helping us build Canada’s next champions.Mike Neill
We are incredibly grateful that we are among several organizations to be providing avenues for participation for young athletes with support from Triathlon BC and the Canadian Tire Corporation, and know the funding will have a positive impact on sport and recreation across BC.
