Free For All Foundation Summer Camp 2017: A Great Success

 Aug 17, 2017 10:00 AM

Summer Camp 2017

Summer Camp 2017 started with great anticipation and ended with a bang at our Canada 150 Celebration BBQ. We had the awesome privilege to impact the lives of over 384 marginalized kids and their families, by providing them with the opportunity to experience sports and recreation fun like never before.

We had the pleasure of welcoming our special guest speaker, Dr. Ivan Hernandez, Doctor of Physical Therapy, Author and Transformation Coach, all the way from Brooklyn, NY, who came and brought value and skills for success in basketball and life. FFAF would like to thank all of our partners, supporters, sponsors, staff, volunteers and parents for continuing to support our Summer Camp.

Our end of camp celebration was held on August 5th where we had the pleasure of hosting various Brampton MPs, MPPs and the Peel Region Police for our annual basketball match.  Congratulations to the FFAF Basketball Team for winning 57-52 against the Peel Regional Police Basketball Team. You played like true stars.

A special thank you goes out to the Ministry of Sports, Tourism and Culture who presented FFAF with $69,500 to support the Keep Them Active afterschool program.  Without generous support like this, we would not be able to continue to impact the lives of marginalized families.

We look forward to hosting Summer Camp 2018 and we would hope that you, also, would be involved!
