The Rebuilding Communities Through Sport Initiative is focused on giving families affected by the recent tornado a special opportunity to gain easy and free access to sport activities – underscoring the role that sports play in the building and strengthening communities.
Everyone is invited to attend the "Community Sports Day & Kick Off" event happening Saturday, November 10 at West Carleton Secondary School. A carousel of sport and support will be held featuring a combination of activities, including traditional and adaptive sports, financial resources and in-kind services accessible for ALL affected by the tornados. The Day will kick-off with a short public rally/media conference in the gymnasium where Sens Foundation, Their Opportunity and Own the Podium will announce the Rebuilding Communities Through Sport initiative. Spokesperson, Todd Nicholson and other community leaders will be on-hand to bring the community together, providing words of inspiration and motivation and encouraging everyone to take a break and just play. The day will feature sport specific stations guided by Ottawa Senators Alumni/mascots, Olympians/ Paralympians, sport and community leaders.
