Blue Bombers Announce Donation of 525 New Football Helmets

The Winnipeg Football Club today announced the donation of 525 new football helmets to be distributed among Manitoba’s 35 high school football programs.

“We are committed to helping amateur football grow in our province and to help ensure kids are wearing safe equipment,” said Wade Miller, President and CEO of the WFC. “Our expanded reach this year through our youth programs is a direct result of the support we have received through the Arts, Culture and Sport in Community (ACSC) Fund from the Province of Manitoba.”

This season, the WFC has donated over $300,000 in equipment to youth programs and has seen over 1,000 youth participate in free football camps offered by the Club.

“The Blue Bombers donating 15 helmets per school is a massive support as helmets cost us around $425 each,” said Chris Olson, Head Coach of the Oak Park Raiders. “Their support of equipment and camps for kids year-round helps us make it affordable for our kids to play.”
