Altitude Sports announces the return of their Alti Action donation program, running from September 17 until October 1 2020. For Fall 2020, Altitude Sports have partnered with Pour Trois Points, Sun Youth, Colour The Trails and Zero Ceiling to facilitate access to sports and the outdoors to marginalized youth and BIPOC (Black, Indegenous and People of Color).
With the COVID-19 pandemic and its impacts, staying healthy and being physically active is more important than ever. However, many people face barriers to accessing the outdoors, including Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC) and their youth. They don’t always have the opportunity to enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, trekking, camping and skiing, or other sports like basketball, football, baseball and hockey.
The partnership allows customers to donate $15 to an organization of their choice, and in turn receive 30 Alti Dollars applicable to any future purchase on altitude-sports.com. The donation is non-refundable and there is a limit of a single $15 donation per season.
During their Spring 2020 campaign, Alti Action donations contributed over $73,000 to partner organizations Breakfast Club of Canada and Moisson Montreal. Since its inception in 2017, Alti Action has raised almost $300,000 for various partner organizations.
Pour Trois Points believes in social equality for youth from underprivileged neighbourhoods. To help them reach their potential and succeed in life and at school, Pour Trois Points trains sport coaches to become life coaches.
Sun Youth provides a range of sports, recreation, and camp programs for children who need a safe, stable environment to explore, develop and perfect their skills and themselves. They’ve been an outlet for underprivileged youth and BIPOC kids for more than sixty years.
Colour The Trails wants to ignite passion for recreation and adventure by allowing Black, Indigenous, and People Of Colour to try outdoor sports. We all have the right to enjoy outdoor recreation responsibly while treating everyone’s lives with respect.
Zero Ceiling’s Adventure Sessions in Whistler, B.C., offer no-cost outdoor adventure day-camps for young people experiencing or at risk of homelessness. The Sessions let youth connect with nature, take on new challenges, have new experiences, and build confidence.
