My name is Christina, better known as ‘Jam’s Mum’. In March 2017, my nine-year-old son Jam, along with his father and baby sister tragically passed away in a car crash at Maryborough Queensland.
Sports Jam is a fundraising campaign inspired by Jam’s great passion for sports. The funds raised from the Sports Jam campaign will help us:
– Offer individual and team sports programs at discounted rates; and
– Promote ‘Sports Jam Day’ to schools and communities where kids can try out multiple sports in one venue.
Sports Jam officially kicked off with a free Come and Try Sports Day for kids aged 6 to 12 years on 13 October 2018, which would have been Jam’s 11th birthday, at 185 Old Northern Rd Albany Creek Queensland.
I hope that Sports Jam will be adopted by many schools and communities so kids can try out multiple team and individual sports in one venue at minimal or better, at no cost. I thought if the schools have Under Eights Day for children to explore different languages and cultures, why not have a Come and Try Sports Day for kids to explore different sports? After all, we’re in a sports-loving nation, aren’t we?
