Editorial resources available to help journalists cover Jumpstart events

Newspapers Canada has partnered with Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities to highlight how the national organization is helping Canadian children participate in organized sport and recreational activities. The Jumpstart Resource Centre on the Newspapers Canada website contains a variety of free-for-use materials for journalists including posters, matte stories, case studies, logos and sample coverage.

Journalists are encouraged to use these materials to enhance their coverage of Jumpstart events and fundraisers in their communities, including the upcoming Jumpstart Games (multiple cities) and the Pedal for Kids event taking place in Alberta on July 13-17.
