Wednesday, June 26, 2019

The City of Leduc is pleased to partner with Canadian Tire Jumpstart’s Leduc Chapter to promote health and recreation in our community through an annual donation to a local school. Today, West Haven Public School was the recipient of recreational equipment and a school-wide lunch as part of the school’s activity day.

“The City of Leduc and the Leduc Chapter of Canadian Tire Jumpstart recognize that recreation and health are so important in our community, and have made a donation of equipment that will be used today, tomorrow and for many years to come,” says Leduc Mayor Bob Young. “We are so grateful to our partners at the Canadian Tire Jumpstart Program – Leduc Chapter for continually ensuring that all children in Leduc get to play.”

Since 2010, the Leduc Chapter of Canadian Tire Jumpstart has raised more than $650,000 and helped more than 4,000 children in Leduc (ages four through 18 years) to take part in sports and recreational activities. The equipment that is being donated this year was selected by teachers from West Haven Public School.
