From Playground to Podium: A fundraising Initiative that works


(ISN) –  We would like to thank Canadians from coast-to-coast for supporting the Canadian Paralympic Committee’s inaugural “From Playground to Podium” fundraising campaign.

With the support of a matching fund made possible by Canadian Tire Corporation, Petro-Canada and Pfizer Canada and that of our generous donors, nearly $70,000 was raised!

The funds raised from this campaign will assist the Canadian Paralympic Committee, in conjunction with our sport partners, to run a number of world-leading programs, which range from introductory “get involved” awareness initiatives, to adapted sports equipment purchases, and many more. We hope to make a profound and lasting impact at the initial point of contact with aspiring athletes because to have a podium full of Canadians athletes, we need a playground full of participants.

Here’s to an exciting year ahead – 2015, the Year of Sport in Canada!
