Sports Jam aims to give kids the opportunity to try out multiple sports in one day at the same venue. This initiative was launched to honour the memories of Jam and Rie who tragically passed away in 2017. If you have five minutes to spare, we invite you to watch this video tribute to two beautiful children.
As a nine-year-old boy, Jam was very passionate about sports and enjoyed trying out activities whenever he can. Jam’s mum remembers having to hop from one venue to another for this to happen. As such, she decided to honour her kids’ memories by hosting Sports Jam to make it a bit easier for families get their kids into sports. We hope that Sports Jam will be adopted in the near future by schools and communities, a concept similar to a sports expo, to be held every four years.
Our first Sports Jam was held on 13 October 2018, which would have been Jam’s 11th birthday. We aim to host Sports Jam every Summer Olympics year, subject to government restrictions and protocols. Jam’s mum (and Rie’s too!) is grateful to all volunteers, partners and sponsors for being with her in this journey. Click here to find out how you can support Sports Jam.
