Canadian Archery Foundation Launches First Online Auction to Support Athletes

The Canadian Archery Foundation is proud to announce the launch of its inaugural online auction, marking a significant step in supporting amateur athletes on their journey to international competition. With the aim of fostering growth and excellence in the sport of archery, this initiative provides athletes with the opportunity to compete on a global stage and gain invaluable experience.

The foundation recognizes the importance of exposing amateur athletes to high-level competition to enhance their skills and mental mastery. In collaboration with Archery Canada, the Canadian Archery Foundation is dedicated to supporting non-Olympic athletes as they pursue their aspirations of representing Canada at international venues. The proceeds from the online auction will directly contribute to funding the 2024 teams that will proudly represent Canada on the world stage, ensuring that athletes have the resources they need to succeed.

The online auction features a wide array of items, including exclusive travel packages and experiences provided in partnership with Winspire and a number of Canadian companies and suppliers including Air Yukon, Paluski Boats, Vortex Canada, Cass’ Creek Trading Post, Kill’n Stix, and Saskatchewan Rush just to name just a few! With the option to bid on multiples of the same item, the auction presents an opportunity for supporters to plan family getaways or gift memorable experiences to loved ones, all while contributing to a worthy cause.

“We encourage everyone, from athlete peers to previous supporters, volunteers, provincial sport organizations, and clubs, to rally around our archery athletes,” said Al Wills, Chair of the Canadian Archery Foundation. “Your participation and financial support are essential in building the reputation of archery in Canada and ensuring that our athletes receive the necessary backing to pursue their dreams.”

The Canadian Archery Foundation invites members, donors, and the public to participate in the online auction and help support the next generation of Canadian archery talent. Whether through bidding on items, promoting the auction on social platforms, or spreading the word to friends and family, every contribution makes a difference in empowering athletes to reach their full potential.
