NEW HOURS: Bike Shop is now open Saturdays 8am to 4pm 

Special thanks to Sherwood Park Chevrolet for surprising us with a gift of $40,000.

We want to extend a very special thanks to Sherwood Park Chevrolet for surprising us with a gift of $40,000! The cheque presentation happened at their dealership back in December. The funds will help us continue helping thousands of kids stay in sport by providing them with the equipment they need. Thank you!

Thank you to The Butler Foundation who have stepped up and granted us money to fix the plumbing issues in the bike shop. 

We also received a grant from TELUS as part of their Giving Back To Canadian Communities program.  Telus is caring for the well-being of their communities by giving back 5% ($90M) of pre-tax profits and volunteering over 1.3M hours last year.

Our City of Edmonton funds came in as per our budget for the year. 

Rosenau and Friends To The Rescue!

Sport Central was informed on Thursday, June 2nd at 11:00 am, that the facility we were using for excess equipment storage had been sold and we had to remove everything by Sunday evening. After the initial panic attack, we called our volunteers and best friends for help with the move. As usual, Rosenau Transport responded with heroic effort and swift action. Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Dillon Rosenau, was using his superpowers of persuasion on the phone, making calls, in a vehicle stuck in traffic on the 401 Highway near Toronto. The Edmonton Rosenau Terminal Manager, Mike Buckley, swung into action looking for a storage location and the trucks and drivers to work on a Sunday. 15 Sport Central volunteers and staff worked intensely getting the pallets prepared and ready to go. In spectacular fashion, the Rosenau trucks “arrived just in time” at 9:00 am and everything was loaded onto the three trucks before noon. It was an amazing effort made possible by Rosenau Transport and the rest of the superheroes. 

A special mention to Sunbelt Rentals for donating their forklift and Matco Moving Solutions for the shrink wrap and boxes.
