The Clearview Youth Centre is proud to announce its success in securing $1,000 of funding from Canadian Jumpstart Charity and the Government of Canada.
Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities is committed to ensuring youth have equal access to sport and recreation. Since 2005 Jumpstart has disbursed more than $215 million to help over 2.5 million kids and counting. Along with Jumpstart, the Clearview Youth Centre understands the importance of sport for the health and well-being of youth and is proud of the work we do to provide community sport and play.

The financial support from Jumpstart will allow the Centre to purchase Fitbits for youth taking part in the brand-new Walk Across Clearview program, which challenges youth to get active and walk “across” Clearview from the top to the bottom, 34KM, in 3KM stretches every Tuesday and Thursday from September 13th to October 13th.
Youth Coordinator Shannon McCormick is excited to have this motivating addition to the Walk Across Clearview program, “Along with the maps they will be given, the Fitbits will allow our Youth to track their distance, steps taken, heart rate and more, providing tangible results of their progress.”
