Jumpstart helps the 1 in 3 Canadian families that cannot afford to enrol their children in sports and recreational activities. For the month of May all Canadian Tire stores, Canadian Tire Gas+, Pita Pit and Mark's locations will be offering customers a red ball in exchange for a $2 donation. 100% of all customer donations will stay in your local community. Saturday, May 26th is Jumpstart Day. Come be a part of something amazing -- helping kids from financially disadvantaged families in your local community get involved in sport and recreation. On Jumpstart Day, most Canadian Tire stores in Canada will have a day filled with fun activities and draws to help raise money for their local community.
