I'm fundraising in support of the MLSE foundation, one built on the belief that sport has the power to change the world. We invest in programs, organizations and communities to empower the next generation to use sport to recognize and reach their potential. Since launching in December 2009, MLSE Foundation has invested more than $35 million into Ontario communities. We fight to provide equitable access to sport and opportunity on the playing field that leads to success and opportunity off the playing field. We know that by changing the game, we can change the future.
Funds raised go to programs like the MLSE LaunchPad, a new 42,000 square foot facility located in Moss Park, Toronto, where youth facing barriers use sport to recognize and reach their potential. The facility is built around Sport For Development programming where sport and physical activity are intentionally used to build healthy communities. MLSE LaunchPad includes multi-purpose sport courts, classrooms and a teaching kitchen. Programs are completely free, and focus on four pillars: (1) Healthy Body, (2) Healthy Mind, (3) Ready for School, (4) Ready for Work.
By sponsoring me, you are making a real difference in the lives of youth in Toronto!
