Saturday is Jumpstart Day in Abbotsford

This Saturday, May 31, the sixth annual Jumpstart Day will take place at the Abbotsford Canadian Tire (32513 South Fraser Way).

This day-long event is in celebration of the Jumpstart Red Ball campaign, which, through the month of May, encourages customers to donate $2 in exchange for a Red Ball – a national symbol for child’s play. Saturday's festivities will include a barbecue and activities for the whole family.

Jumpstart provides financial assistance for families who can't afford to enrol their kids in organized sport, and has helped more than 730,000 kids in the past nine years. One hundred per cent of every donation stays in the community in which it was made.
