Community Impact

With Agency Partners, We’re Making a Difference Every Single Day

For the past 5 years in Port Alberni, supporting partner agencies have been an integral part of the important work carried out by the Funtastic Sports Society. Together with our sponsors and volunteers, we have been working to improve people’s lives by funding not-for-profit agency partners and their programs that meet the sport and recreation & quality of life within the community – and working towards building a strong network of groups working together.

According to Healthy Families BC, encouraging residents of all ages to achieve and maintain their best possible health is a priority. Healthy communities support their residents in adopting healthier lifestyles by providing access to physical activities, nutritious foods, tobacco-free environments and social interactions that promote positive mental health. Communities that support healthy living make it easier for all residents, regardless of age or ability, to make healthy choices every day.

Your support helps us fund a network of partner agencies who offer easier access to sport and recreation opportunities to their clients. They provide vital services to hundreds of people throughout the region. These are some of the groups we have donated to over the past five years--- AV Neighborhood Link Society(Read & Feed Program) Special Olympics BC/Port Alberni—Athletic Hall Society—KUU-US Crisis Line—EJ Dunn School Backpack Program—AV Minor Lacross—ZattZoo Project Association—Alberni Elementary Music Program—Alberni Teens Can Rock--Kidsport—ADSS Wrestling Team—Sea Cadet Corp—Navy League—Army Cadets--ACAWS--PA Kinsmen—Pathways--Parks & Rec for field improvements.

Since 1984 Vernon has been hosting this annual fundraiser. Armstrong and Enderby are also hosting tournaments on the same weekend. Port Alberni is now under the Funtastic umbrella as they started holding their annual tournament in 2013 and they are hosting 80 teams.

We would like to thank our many partners, local businesses, local government, community groups, and our awesome volunteers who help us each year we host the slo-pitch tournament & music festival. We appreciate each and everyone of you!!
