Canadian Tire Jumpstart and the Canadian Paralympic Committee created the Parasport Jumpstart Fund to help get more kids across Canada involved in sport. The fund helps to support the costs of sports and recreational programs for children between the ages of four and 18, who are financially disadvantaged and living with a disability. Funds may be used towards registration, transportation and equipment costs for children within approved Parasport programs.
For Track and Field clubs currently offering or looking to offer para athletics programs this represents a significant opportunity to cover the costs of acquiring equipment, including the purchase of racing wheelchairs; throwing frames and Run, Jump, Throw bags as well as funding to be able to provide transportation for participants and cover club fees for those who may otherwise not be able to afford to participate.
For further information on the program and instructions on how to apply visit: http://www.paralympic.ca/parasport-jumpstart-fund
Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities will be accepting applications to the Parasport Jumpstart Fund beginning September 25, 2013 and closing October 29, 2013. Funds will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you require specific assistance and guidance in preparing an application you can contact your provincial/territorial branch association or Athletics Canada directly.
