JAYS CARE TO HOST FIRST-EVER BLUE JAYS            GAME TAKEOVER IN BOLTON TONIGHT

 

This evening, Jays Care Foundation, in partnership with the Town of Caledon, will host the first-ever Blue Jays Game Takeover. Jays Care will bring the production touches of a Major League experience to a Challenger Baseball game between local Bolton and Brampton teams, with a community crowd of more than 500 fans expected to be on hand.

Challenger Baseball is Jays Care’s adaptive baseball program for children and youth living with physical and/or cognitive disabilities. The program is currently running in 96 communities across Canada.   

The game will celebrate the opening of Bolton’s Challenger Baseball Diamond, which was a 2016 Jays Care Field Of Dreams project. Jays Care invested $150,000 towards infrastructure refurbishments to help make the local diamond accessible. Over the last five years, Jays Care has committed more than $7.5 million to 70 infrastructure projects across Canada.
