50/50 is a guaranteed win for fans and Manitoba youth

Have you ever wondered what happens to the other half of the Winnipeg Jets and Manitoba Moose 50/50 funds? When you purchase a ticket for either the Kromar Printing 50/50 at Winnipeg Jets games, or the Dave’s Quick Print 50/50 at Manitoba Moose home games, half of each pot goes to support the Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation, funding programming that benefits local youth in Manitoba. By purchasing a ticket, Winnipeg Jets and Manitoba Moose fans help make the sport of hockey and the summer camp experience more accessible to disadvantaged youth. Over the past 5 seasons, 50/50 has raised over $6,915,000 for the Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation’s 3 programs: The Winnipeg Jets Hockey Academy, Camp Manitou, and Project 11.

Your participation in the 50/50 assists disadvantaged youth in Manitoba with sport and educational opportunities, while helping to build life skills and shape character in addition to promoting physical and mental wellness. Through the year-round programming for the students it supports, the Foundation is able to stay connected throughout their academic careers, increasing students’ engagement in their schools and communities, and ultimately resulting in improved school attendance and graduation rates. Your support directly helps to remove the barriers preventing kids from participating in organized sport and enjoying outdoor adventures, and contributes to their physical, intellectual and social achievements.

Thank you for helping to ignite potential in over 6,800 children this season. You are a game changer in our community!
