ACF Starting Line

What is the Starting Line?

The Starting Line’s purpose is to bring together the entire athletics community to enhance our mission to drive growth in participation; enable improved athletic performance; and provide a positive experience for all in athletics. By donating to the Athletics Canada Foundation (ACF), you get on the Starting Line and make a difference by supporting our community and those who compete for our country with pride.

Your commitment to the Starting Line will ensure that ACF can continue to:

  • Encourage young Canadians to get active through first contact programs
  • Support our community of clubs
  • Ensure athletes actively continue to pursue athletics through scholarships
  • Inspire the next generation of elite athletes in Canada
