The Canadian Athletes Now Fund (CAN Fund) www.canadianathletesnow.ca is a not-for-profit organization devoted solely to raising funds and awareness of Canadian athletes. CAN Fund connects Canadians directly to the athletes journey and success. With each donation made, the individual name of the athlete that the funds are supporting is presented to the donor. CAN Fund provides Canadian athletes with the opportunity to focus on success instead of focusing on unnecessary financial hurdles. Donations raised for the Fund are given directly to Canadian athletes to support their training, coaching, nutrition, team fees, travel and basic living expenses. The television campaign aims to raise awareness and funding for the CAN Fund cause and to educate Canadians about the importance of providing both emotional and financial support to the athletes. Canadian athletes face a funding shortfall and CAN Fund helps to provide the answer by putting the funding directly into the hands of the athletes so that they can compete on a level playing field.
