Oshawa Minor Receives Jumpstart Sport Relief Fund Grant!!

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.  Your Oshawa Minor Lacrosse Association and the communities it serves have experienced the impact of the pandemic first-hand.  

We recently received confirmation that we are amongst nearly 300 sport and recreation organizations nationally to be provided with grant support through 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.

With Jumpstart’s support, we’ll be able to increase the resources required to expand the visibility of lacrosse in Oshawa, as well as expand the reach of lacrosse deeper into our community with programs targeted to special needs and at-risk youth.

Very exiciting news!  Stay tuned for more!
