Extra Funding for 2014 Canadian National Judo Championships MONTREAL, Canada. (April 11, 2014) For the second year in a row, the Canadian Judo community unites together to make sure every judoka has the funds they need to get to the Canadian Judo Nationals. MAKEACHAMP has created a unique campaign (http://makeachamp.com/CanadianNationalChampionship) where all the funds that are raised, will be split equally among athletes with campaigns for the National Championships. Click here (http://makeachamp.com/CanadianNationalChampionship) to visit the campaign.

This campaign is unique in that it gives everyone a chance to support our judokas as they prepare for the Canadian Judo Nationals. A contribution to this campaign goes a long way because the funds are split equally among athletes already raising funds - it is these athletes that need your support the most. Your contribution will propel those campaigns forward and get them focus on training rather than financing.

The 2015 Canada Winter Games are coming to Prince George.
From February 13 - March 1, 2015, Prince George and Northern British Columbia will play host to 2,350 athletes, 950 coaches and officials, up to 4,500 volunteers, hundreds of media and thousands of visitors.
This event will be the largest multi-sporting and cultural event to ever be held in Prince George and northern British Columbia and is forecasted to generate an economic impact of $70 - $90 million while building champions and inspiring dreams amongst Canadian youth.
Prince George is the first city in British Columbia to host a winter edition of the Canada Games and together with our Official Host First Nation, the Lheidli T'enneh, we can’t wait to extend a heartfelt welcome to the athletes from over 800 communities who will be joining us for the 2015 Canada Winter Games.
