Brockville – On Thursday, February 13, the two Rotary Clubs in Brockville presented Canadian Tire (Brockville and Prescott) owners Alex and Beatriz Joannides, a cheque for $25,000 towards their program Jumpstart.
Canadian Tire Jumpstart believes that children, ages 4 to 18, should have equal access to sports and physical activity. Over 70 activities related to hockey, dance, climbing, swimming and other sports are included in their funding program for children.
In 2018, 971 children in this area were assisted with a disbursement of $50,168. Canadian Tire Jumpstart is Giving Kids a Sporting Chance!
