Canadian Tire Jumpstart is a national charitable program launced by the family of Candian Tire companies in 2005. The program helps financially disadvantaged kids (ages 4-18) participate in organized sport and recreation by covering registration, equipment and / or transportation costs. For some kids, the program gives them the chance to experience a sport for the very first time. For others, it is a boost they need to continue with an activity they love.
