Changing the world through the power of sport. It’s what we do.
The Canadian Olympic Foundation believes that everyone is capable of greatness – they just need to be given the opportunity. As the official charitable organization of Team Canada, it’s our responsibility to create that opportunity for all of our Canadian athletes.
5to8 is a powerful campaign created to help Team Canada’s next generation of Olympians. Our young athletes who are 5 to 8 years away from the podium are in the greatest need of funding. This not only helps catapult our future champions to the top of the podium, but it also secures Canada’s title as one of the top nations in the world for sport excellence.
Inspired by the David and Ruth Asper Family, 5to8 was created to encourage all Canadians to give to our Next Generation athletes in need. Every donation made to 5to8 will be doubled by the Government of Canada making every dollar worth twice as much to help support the Next Generation of Team Canada.
