We are excited to share that the Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre has been selected by Jumpstart to receive a grant from the Sport Relief Fund. The fund helps community partners like us continue to provide access to sport and play for kids in our community. The grant will go a long way towards helping us to continue the Learn to Train program that has been running at the Centre since 2016.

As one of over 1,200 sport and recreation organizations across Canada to receive grant funding from Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund in 2021, the continued need for support is apparent.

With Jumpstart’s support, we’ll be able to continue to offer the Learn to Train program to schools and organizations in our community.

The Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre, with support from Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities, provides local children from priority neighbourhoods with the opportunity to participate in the Learn to Train program. Learn to Train started with just two schools and 46 children and has grown to provide over 40 groups and 1000 children the opportunity to participate the program at Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre. 
 
The Learn to Train program is facilitated by the Sports Academy at Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre and provides participants with the tools and training to develop the necessary skills, habits and mental strategies to lead healthy and active lifestyles. All while experiencing a unique training environment in a world-class sports and recreation facility.

With Canadian Tire Corporation’s commitment of an additional $12 million to Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund in 2021, together, we’ll help build back communities through sport and play.
