Canadian Tire’s JumpStart is again helping more kids on Vancouver Island to be active in sports.

Canadian Tire Nanaimo, through its JumpStart program, recently supported PacificSport Vancouver Island programs to the tune of $21,000.

“We are very proud to be a partner in the JumpStart program,” said Marc Telosky, Canadian Tire manager. “We look forward to helping thousands of Nanaimo children in sports for 2019-20.”

He also thanked customers who supported the campaign. The store will hold a fundraiser barbecue for the same cause this Thursday, June 27, 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
