BENEFITING: Mennonite New Life Centre of Toronto
We are hosting a free ultimate frisbee summer camp called Let’s PLAY Ultimate! for youth ages 8-17 that live, go to school, or work in the Downsview-Roding area of Toronto.
The Let’s PLAY Ultimate! project aims to promote the settlement and integration of newcomer families through sports. The project will see adult volunteers and youth leaders running practice sessions and league games.
By hosting a local youth ultimate league, the Let’s PLAY Ultimate! project will provide an opportunity for vulnerable youth to experience leadership opportunities on the field, resulting in a sense of engagement, and further integration with their peers and the community.
Additionally, the project will reduce the financial and travel barriers for families to enrolling their children in sport, and will increase the ability for families to attend games and support their children in the activity.
A free disc (frisbee) will be provided by Ultimate Canada to all youth participants in this summer camp and the Toronto Ultimate Club (TUC) is offering a reduced membership rate of only $10 per youth for our participants (down from $35) for the duration of the camp.
The purpose of this fundraiser is to raise money to cover the $10 membership fee for each participant, plus some additional funding to allow interested participants to join TUC programs after completing the camp.
We hope you join us in supporting newcomer youth and families!
