The Vancouver Canadians Baseball Foundation brings fans together to celebrate their efforts from within their Foundation. Their goal remains to not only to raise funding for their many programs, but also bring awareness to the many local children from their own neighbourhoods that need their commitment and support.
Thanks to the generosity of donors and partners, the Canadians have been able to welcome more than 1,000 children between the ages of 8 and 13 out to historic Scotiabank Field at Nat Bailey Stadium and provide them with the opportunity to play organized baseball, cost-free which includes their equipment, transportation and meals.
They also see more than 100 local volunteers donate their time to this project allowing children to feel safe, build confidence and learn the game of baseball on the same diamond that the Vancouver Canadians play on each summer.
