The City of Cornwall is encouraging residents to wear their favourite jersey to school, work or around the community on Friday, November 29th as part of national Jersey Day, a nationwide event to show support for sport.
Organized as part of the RBC Sports Day in Canada celebrations, Jersey Day is an opportunity for Canadians to celebrate the power of sport by wearing their favourite team colours to their workplace, classroom or community function.
“Sports are a great way to build friendships and learn new skills while promoting healthier, more active lifestyles – something we are committed to,” said Christine Lefebvre, Division Manager, Parks & Recreation.
RBC Sports Day in Canada, on Saturday, November 30th, is a national celebration of sport, from grassroots to high-performance levels, in communities across Canada. The official day caps off a week of more than 1,000 local events and includes a special broadcast on CBC Television.
