OUR CAUSE

We believe all kids should have access to sport and the opportunity to both develop and pursue lasting dreams on the playing field. Game Changers support MLSE Foundation's youth-focused initiatives including the latest, MLSE LaunchPad. MLSE LaunchPad, a registered charity, is a newly opened 42,000 sq ft. Sport for Development facility that offers free sport and life skill programs for thousands of at-risk youth living in Toronto. Help us #changethegame, and allow youth to recognize their potential through the power of sport.

Since launching in December 2009, the MLSE Foundation has changed over 110,000 kids lives through sport. 

MLSE FOUNDATION + MLSE LAUNCHPAD 

Introducing MLSE LaunchPad

Los Angeles-based artist and designer Steven Harrington, whose artwork lives throughout MLSE LaunchPad, came out and spent time with the youths. Harrington and Toronto youth painted the final mural for the centre which features the faces of cheering fans with the words: "The future is yours to fill in".

With the support of MLSE's teams, MLSE Foundation supports the refurbishment of local athletic facilities and funds charities that support kids through sports and recreational programs.  

As part of its generous commitment to MLSE Foundation, Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment (MLSE) directly funds the administration and staffing costs associated with all Foundation operations.  This contribution, along with an annual financial donation, ‎makes it possible for MLSE Foundation to achieve its mission to improve kids lives through the spirit and power of sport. 

MLSE LaunchPad is a new 42,000 square foot facility located in Moss Park, Toronto, where youth facing barriers use sport to recognize and reach their potential.  The facility is built around Sport For Development programming where sport and physical activity are intentionally used to build healthy communities. MLSE LaunchPad includes multi-purpose sport courts, classrooms and a teaching kitchen. Programs are completely free, and focus on four pillars: (1) Healthy Body, (2) Healthy Mind, (3) Ready for School, (4) Ready for Work.
