Canadian Tire Jumpstart has awarded Leaf Rapids Education Centre $2,500.00 that will be utilized to purchase 20 pairs of running shoes for our students who are currently training to participate in the Manitoba Marathon on June 19, 2022.

Our school expresses sincere gratitude for the financial assistance that Jumpstart has extended to us. Leaf Rapids is the first school in Area 1 to receive a grant from Jumpstart this year.

Canadian Tire Jumpstart is committed to ensuring kids in need have equal access to sport and recreation.   Jumpstart helps eligible families cover the costs of registration, transportation, and equipment, and provides funding to selected organizations for recreational infrastructure and programming.  Since 2005 Jumpstart has disbursed more than $215 million to help over 2.5 million kids and counting. Jumpstart's Community Development Grant is open to organizations, schools and municipalities who demonstrate the greatest need and potential impact, including existing and first-time grant recipients.

Along with Jumpstart, we understand the importance of sport for the health and well-being of kids and their families and are proud of the work we do to provide community sport and play.
