Special Edition Jerseys
Among the event’s many highlights, attendees had the opportunity to win one of two special edition jerseys designed by Indigenous artist Jeff Dickson. These jerseys were a symbol of support for the Indigenous community and a tangible representation of the power of art and culture in sports. We were excited that youth attendees won the jerseys at the event and will enjoy them for years to come.
