OTTAWA, May 25, 2013 /CNW/ - Today is Jumpstart Day, a special day
filled with fun activities that will help kids from financially
disadvantaged families in local communities throughout Canada get
involved in sport and recreation.
I am proud that our Government provides continued support to Canadian
Tire's Jumpstart to make these kinds of opportunities possible. Having
the chance to experience the game of soccer at an early age definitely
influenced my love of the sport, and I want today's young people to
have these same opportunities.
I wish to personally congratulate Jumpstart and thank the Canadian Tire
employees, volunteers, and community partners who contribute to the
success of the Jumpstart Day and make a difference in the lives of so
many children in Canada.
As well, I encourage everyone to get involved and to help get the kids
in your local community in sport and recreation. Find out more by
visiting the Canadian Tire Jumpstart website. http://jumpstart.canadiantire.ca/en/events
