Getting out and playing sports is especially important for youth, particularly those at risk of homelessness, and youth in the Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC) communities. Many of them don’t have the opportunity to enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, trekking, camping and skiing, or other sports like basketball, football, baseball and hockey.
Our customers have the chance to help and make an impactful change by supporting Sun Youth, Colour the Trails, Zero Ceiling or Pour Trois Points. All four organisations allow BIPOC and youth to try physical activities in safe, structured environments.
What It Is
From September 17 to October 1, 2020, through Alti Action you can choose to donate $15 to Sun Youth, Colour the Trails, Zero Ceiling or Pour Trois Points. Our partner organizations work hard to provide healthy environments to those in need, and your support is more critical than ever.
In return for your donation, your account will be credited $30 Alti Dollars, redeemable on our website, altitude-sports.com. Each Alti Dollar is equal to one dollar CAD and can be used on any future purchase, including discounted items. Alti Dollars do not expire—if those winter boots you love aren’t currently available in your size, you can wait until they are.
Since 2017, our customers’ generous Alti Action donations have contributed nearly $300,000 to our partner organizations.
Sun Youth provides a range of sports, recreation, and camp programs for children who need a safe, stable environment to explore, develop and perfect their skills and themselves. An outlet for underprivileged youth and BIPOC, Sun Youth holds as their primary objectives poverty alleviation and preventing exclusion.
Colour The Trails
Colour The Trails wants to ignite passion for recreation and adventure with events that allow Black, Indigenous, and People Of Colour to try outdoor sports. Being outdoors is good for our souls, and we all have the right to enjoy outdoor recreation responsibly while treating everyone’s lives with respect.
Zero Ceiling’s Adventure Sessions in Whistler, B.C., offer no-cost outdoor adventure day-camps for young people experiencing or at risk of homelessness, too often excluded from the outdoors. The Sessions give youth a chance to connect with nature, take on new challenges, have new experiences, and build confidence.
Pour Trois Points
Pour Trois Points believes in social equality for youth from underprivileged neighbourhoods. All youth need the opportunity to develop their potential. To accomplish this, Pour Trois Points trains sport coaches to become life coaches, who then help youth gain the skills needed to succeed in life and in school.
How it works
In order to claim your $30 Alti Dollars, you must be signed into your Altitude Sports account. If you haven’t got an account already, you can easily sign up on our website here. It’s not mandatory to be an Altitude Sports Lifetime Member – although with perks like free returns, why wouldn’t you want to be?
Your $15 donation can be added to your cart as a product and from there you simply follow the usual checkout process. After your donation, you will receive a confirmation email indicating your account has been credited with the Alti Dollars. Only one $15 donation can be made per season, and the donation is non-refundable.
