Dodgeball is Everybody
This program has now concluded. The Dodgeball Canada Board of Directors will select a recipient by August 26, 2020. A big thank you to everyone that purchased merchandise and participated in the Dodgeball Canada Community Fund.
Dodgeball Canada recognizes that our members, athletes, provincial organizations, leagues, volunteers, and the broader community have been an integral part in helping build our success over the years. To show our gratitude, we want to support those who have helped us build the sport of dodgeball by donating a fund to a Canadian league or program that has suffered financially due to the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
These leagues and/or programs must demonstrate an environment that reinforces inclusivity, through supporting marginalized community members. We invite you to share your story or nominate someone that you believe has made a difference in the sport of dodgeball and fits the criteria listed above.
These funds will be raised through our first merchandise campaign “Dodgeball is Everybody” with Savage Apparel Co., Dodgeball Canada’s official apparel partner for the 2020/2021 season. The gear will consist of a wide variation of merchandise from sleeved, long-sleeved, and sleeveless jerseys to headbands, neckties, and sun hoodies, which can all be purchased at our virtual partnership store on the Savage website.
The Dodgeball Canada Community Fund (the “Fund”) campaign will see $500 donated from the sales of the “Dodgeball is Everybody” merchandise. The Fund campaign is overseen by Dodgeball Canada and will run until August 18, 2020 at 11:59 EST. It is open to entrants who are legal residents of Canada and are 18 years of age or older.
While our association may be coast-to-coast covering a distance of over 5,000 km, we are still a close-knit community with common interests: inclusion, diversity, and unity, and of course, dodgeball.
