Parasport Jumpstart Fund
July 18, 2017
The Parasport Jumpstart Fund is a great way to create awareness and grow your parasport! The fund will cover costs for three types of programming: Awareness/Recruitment, Participation and Athlete Development.
Since 2013, Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities and Canadian Paralympic Committee have been engaged in a partnership to create greater opportunities for children and youth with disabilities between the ages of 4 and 18, and who face barriers to actively participate in organized sports and physical activity. To date the fund has disbursed over $520,000.
In 2017, the Parasport Jumpstart Fund will support more Parasport programs across the country through a granting style program. The focus still remains on improving access to grassroots participation for children and youth but has expanded to include more opportunities for a variety of sports and programming type.
