Brockville, ON – Their Opportunity Minor Sports Corporation, a startup non-profit, has made it through three rounds of voting to make it as a Semi-Finalist in the Aviva Community Fund Competition. With your votes, Their Opportunity will have the chance to win thousands of dollars to help underprivileged children participate in recreational sports programs.
Starting today, you can vote once per day for your favourite idea. Their Opportunity is hoping for your vote.
The Aviva Community Fund gives small, medium and large-sized community ideas the chance to win up to one million dollars to bring positive change to their respective communities. Ideas had to go through three rigorous rounds of voting to make it to the Semi-Finals. After this fourth round of voting, the top 30 Finalists will go before a panel of judges.
Their Opportunity works within communities to make sports involvement a possibility for all children. Started by two brothers from Brockville, Ont., Randy and Rob Gill grew up immersed in minor hockey and other sports and value the role it played in their lives.
“Sports are a necessary component to young Canadian children’s lives. Not only for physical health, but also for self-esteem and character building” says Founder Randy Gill. Recipients of the program are also required to volunteer in their community, as part of a pay-it-forward model.
The brothers agree that “it takes a village to raise a child” and are doing their part to strengthen communities in Canada. Offices in Calgary and Whitby enables Their Opportunity to reach needy kids across the country.
“It is more than a sports activity program” says Rob Gill, co-founder. “It’s a personal development program to end the cycle of poverty in our communities.”
