As a national sports and athletic movement, Maccabi Canada is about encouraging athletic competition, fitness, and elite sports development. A wonderful by-product of our activities is to develop and cultivate our future community leaders through their respective participation in international sports competition.
Once every four years, the worldwide Maccabi movement, of which Maccabi Canada has been a proud member since 1950, gathers in Israel to compete with over 75 other countries and 9000 athletes in the International Maccabiah Games, an Olympic style event. The third largest event in the world after the Olympics and University games.
With your help, the money raised from the Scotiabank Charity Challenge will go to support Maccabi Canada's Adopt An Athlete program which helps send elite athletes, who otherwise cannot afford it, to compete in the Maccabiah Games.
Please contact John De Finney at firstname.lastname@example.org or the Maccabi Canada office at 416.398.0515 for more information on how we can support your most welcomed effort to help us. Also, follow the event on Facebook and the web:
