Community sports festivals in the game plan

In announcing the partnership, Ammar Kamara, Canadian Cup of African Caribbean Nations Sports Organization President said, “CCACN Sports is committed to forming the best partnerships for children, families and their communities. We want to work with partners like the Pickering Advisory Committee on Diversity, who shares our passion for the development of fairness. Partnerships must have tangible benefits for both parties, and be measurable against all means. We work hard to make sure that clear results are at the core of our agreements with our corporate donors.”

According to Kirk Mark, Chair of Pickering Advisory Committee on Diversity and President of The Canadian Alliance of Black Educators, “grassroots and developmental level activities were identified as one of the key social investment areas in Durham some time ago, and we are excited about this new idea of bringing ethnocultural groups together, with an opportunity to enhance the social benefits to our children, youth and families.”

On August 6th, CCACN, in a collaboration with community development partners like: Pickering Soccer Club and Advisory Committee on Diversity-City of Pickering, will host a community sports festival theme: Celebrating Diversity in Durham through Sports, with anticipation of more than 20 ethnocultural societies and some 100 young learners, engage in an exciting celebration of cultures .
