This month we celebrate the success of the 1999 Pan American Games, held in Winnipeg. CSCM was created as a legacy of these games and 15% of the Centre’s support continues to come from the Pan Am Legacy Fund held at The Winnipeg Foundation. Today, the remaining 85% of the Centre’s funding is fluid, which is not conducive to success or growth – for the Centre or our athletes.

We need your help to create a stable, sustainable future, ensuring long-term athlete development and allowing us to expand our capacity and impact.
