Wetaskiwin Mall And Sport Chek Jumpstarting A Cause

Pipestone Flyer

    Local kids will be given a ‘Jumpstart’ the weekend of May 30th to June 1st, 2014 when the Wetaskiwin Mall and Sport Chek will be hosting the Jumpstart Fundraiser. Jumpstart is a national program that has given more than 500,000 kids across Canada the chance to play.  The charitable program enables youth to participate in organized sport and recreation by covering the costs of registration, equipment and/or transportation. All proceeds raised at Wetaskiwin Mall Sport Chek fundraiser will stay within the community to help local kids get involved in fun, safe and healthy extracurricular activities.

    Slava Fedossenko, representing owners of the Mall, Endurance Equities Corporation describes a weekend filled with activities. “On Saturday, May 31, there will be an outdoor community event featuring a BBQ, bouncy castle, as well as a special appearance by players from the FC Edmonton professional soccer team. Various players will be on hand for a meet & greet, Shooter Tutor, and autograph signing. The Shooter Tutor is a large inflatable soccer net, and will be an exciting and fun way to pick up some pointers from the professionals.”

    Fedossenko also mentions that throughout the entire weekend, retailers at Wetaskiwin Mall will be offering specials in-store and sidewalk sales. He invites residents to enjoy the festivities, learn about new retailers and services coming to the Mall and to see first-hand the renovations that are taking place.

    The Wetaskiwin Mall and Sport Chek are proud to be hosting a community event that is supporting a great cause.
