More local youths will be able to enjoy sports thanks to Prescott’s Canadian Tire.

Canadian Tire has raised $4,235 from June first to July 31st. The annual event surpassed the store’s initial goal of $3,000.

Brian Dikdan is the store owner and says it’s amazing to have that much support come from a small community. He says the money goes into the pot for Jumpstart in Prescott.

“That money is now sitting there able to be used by kids trying to get into sports, registration or equipment. And not just for the traditional sports like baseball or football or whatever, but also for dance and other activities.”

Money was brought in through a barbecue, Jumpstart Day and a donation box at the front of the store.

Dikdan says it’s confidential for anyone who would like to apply through Jumpstart. To find more information about Jumpstart click here.
