Hot off the press - get your Jumpstart 2013 Calendar today!
Canadian Tire Jumpstart is proud to announce the launch of the 2013 Art Meets Athletes wall calendar, featuring portraits of Canadian athletes that have been created by Canadian artists. This second annual calendar puts Canadian culture front and centre in celebrating our country’s athletes and artistic talents. The entire undertaking is a collaborative effort of many volunteers to promote the Jumpstart cause, with the athletes and artists lending their images and talent to produce this amazing collection. One featured Jumpstart athlete ambassador is Hayley Wickenheiser, who was chosen for the Canadian women’s national hockey team at the age of 15. Since then, she has won 3 Olympic gold medals and has led the team to several World Championships titles. Another athlete we’re proud to feature in the calendar is Simon Whitfield, who since the age of 11, has relentlessly pursued the sport of triathlon. A proud representative of Canada in three Olympic games, he has won two medals - gold in Sydney (2009) and silver in Beijing (2008).
This year, the calendar is available at participating Canadian Tire stores. It retails for $10.00 plus tax, with $5.00 from each sale going towards Jumpstart to help more kids in your communities play.
Many thanks to everyone who has helped make this calendar a success!
