Join us on sample date

The MLSE Team Up Challenge presented by Ford is the premier peer-to-peer fundraising event of its kind. A full day of fun and competition, the MLSE Team Up Challenge is an all day, multi-sport tournament where teams compete against one another in rousing games of soccer, basketball, ball hockey, beach dodgeball and beach volleyball to raise funds for MLSE Foundation's largest project to date - MLSE LaunchPad

The event is hosted at Cabana & Polson Pier (11 Polson Street, Toronto), a unique venue in downtown Toronto overseeing the city's skyline. To compete in the tournament, teams of 8-10 people must reach a minimum fundraising target of $5,000

MLSE LaunchPad is a 42,000 square foot Sport For Development facility where youth facing barriers use sport to recognize and reach their potential. All funds raised through pledges and donations will help MLSE LaunchPad achieve sustainable, wide-ranging social outcomes for youth facing barriers using a Sport For Development approach. Each team will be paired with a Youth Ambassador who embodies the spirit of MLSE LaunchPad. All youth ambassadors will be on site on Game Day, as members of the MLSE LaunchPad 'Hype Squad', to help cheer your team onto victory!
"The MLSE Team Up Challenge is one of the most rewarding
and fun charitable things you could possibly do!"
