Canadawide Sports Surpasses Goal to Send Kids to Camp

A big THANK YOU goes out to everyone that supported our first GoFundMe campaign.

We set a goal to sponsor 3 at-risk youth for Fitz Vanderpool’s Summer Camp with a World Champ.  Our target was to raise $800 and the goal was surpassed with generous donations from staff, friends and family.

For those not familiar with “The Whip” and the work he does, here’s a little background:

K-W’s inaugural Athlete of the Year and former Canadian and World Boxing Champion — Fitz “The Whip” Vanderpool hosts summer camp for kids. His 5-day structured camps inspires kids to train and play like champions.  With over 25 years of experience as an NCCP coach,  Fitz continues to be a positive role model and mentor for many youth.

Canadawide Sports believes that sport can play a positive role in youth development, including improved academic achievement, higher self-esteem and fewer behavioural problems. Through the generous support of our employees, customers and suppliers we are able to encourage youth sport initiatives.
