Local Peace Country Jumpstart Chapter is looking for families to help..


One in three Canadian families cannot afford to enroll their kids in organized sports and physical activity (Vision Critical, 2011) which means many kids are missing out on the benefits that come with organized play. 

This is not necessary for families in the Grande Prairie Region. The local Peace Country Jumpstart Chapter has money and they want to help!

How can they help?

They get kids in the game by assisting with the costs associated with registration, equipment and/or transportation for sports and physical activity programming. They also lend support to unique initiatives aimed at increasing access to sports and physical activity programming.

There are families in our region that need support and we need your help to find them! Please download and print off a copy of the very-easy-to-fill-out application form and give it to someone that could use a little extra support.

Don't have a printer? Applications can be picked up and dropped off at the service desk at Canadian Tire. 

You can also help by sharing this information and helping get the word out there!

Thank You!
