How does it work?
The game will start in the Yukon and each location will play for a 1-hour slot. At the end of their hour they will pass the score onto the next city and the game will continue until it completes each stop from coast to coast.
Why are we doing it?
The aim of the game is to raise more funds to help promote and build Ultimate across the country. This year, for the association that raises the most funds, Ultimate Canada will provide each player that participated in the AHGCUG from your location an Art Hawkins Great Canadian Ultimate Game Jersey and free Ultimate Canada Disc and the Association will get a free registration to the 2013 Ultimate Canada Conference held in Calgary Alberta!!!
And for the individual who raises or donates the most funds, an official Team Canada Jersey!
Where does the money go?
Money raised will go towards the Art Hawkins Ultimate Fund. The purpose of the fund is to support the accessibility and development of Ultimate and Spirit of the Game in Canada with children, youth and those with a disability, especially in economically disadvantaged communities. As such, we have partnered with Christie Lake Kids as one of the special projects that will benefit from the funds raised from the event.Christie Lake Kids provides recreational programs as well skill-building programs to disadvantaged youth. Ultimate Canada has partnered with Christie Lake Kids to provide an Ultimate program to the youth they serve, getting more kids active and playing Ultimate!
