Sports Jam

Sports Jam is a fundraising campaign inspired by Jam’s enthusiasm for sports. The funds raised from the Sports Jam campaign will help us:

  • Promote Sports Jam to schools and communities
  • Regularly host Sports Jam Days where kids can try out multiple team and individual sports in one venue
  • Offer sports programs at discounted rates

 

Sports Jam kicked off on 13 October 2018 at Albany Creek. Despite the wet weather, 100 kids were introduced to five sporting codes of basketball, footy, soccer, taekwon-do and tennis. Inspired by an amazing young man’s great passion for sports, Sports Jam aims to encourage schools and communities to host a Sports Jam Day giving kids the chance to try out different sports.

 

Please take 5 minutes to watch this beautiful video tribute to Jam and Rie who were tragically killed, along with their father, in a car crash in Queensland in March 2017. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-r305_ZmUo

Thank You

We thank the Lord for our sports partners, sponsors and volunteers who made Sports Jam a reality. Jam’s Mum (and Rie’s too!) would like to send her personal thanks to everyone who took time to be with her in honouring my kids’ memories.

 

Please leave your feedback on our FB page @joinsportsjam or send us a message to help us plan our next event. We hope that you will continue to spread the word and help make Sports Jam Day an ongoing event for schools and communities.
