  • Canadian Tire Jumpstart Campaign

    Jumpstart is a national charity with a commitment to local communities. Jumpstart is more than just about getting kids active, it’s about giving kids from families in financial need the same chance to participate as their neighbours, their classmates and their friends.

    Whether it’s the chance to try a new sport or to continue with a favourite one, no kid should be left out. Jumpstart as the name implies, was initiated to help children and young people participate in non-competitive recreational sports. Funding is for children and young people of low income families; funds cover, up to a maximum of $300, registration fees, purchase of equipment and transportation costs.

    • Age: 4-18
    • Length of Activity: Minimum one hour per week for 5 weeks or, in the case of sport camps, minimum three hours per week for 3 weeks.
    • Annual Maximum: Two activities per child.
    • Family Maximum: All children and young people of the same family are eligible.
    • General: All funds must directly benefit children and young people; administrative costs are not eligible. Furthermore, the program does not reimburse monies already spent.

    Organisations receiving funds cannot receive more than $500 per calendar year.
    Jumpstart reserves the right to audit all requests for assistance.

    Children and Yoga

    Children, wether we think they do or not, have stress in their lives that they struggle with every day. In a 2012 survey from Health Canada the number of children between age 5-9 who reported being “anxious or stress” was 23% compared with 14% from 1996. Whatever the cause of this stress, a great way to solve it is by taking ten minutes each morning to do yoga posses. If your not familiar with any or unsure how to introduce them to your children, youTube has several good quality videos that show how to do yoga positions or has short yoga videos geared toward children. Teaching your children excersises that help deal with stress and improved motor skills will provide long term benefits that will extend beyond the home. Try it for two weeks and then see the effects such a small amount of time can have!
