LA RUE INSPIRE teamed up with PUMA to create a movement that encourages people to make an effort to improve their neighborhoods, so that the next generation can benefit from the advantages of growing up in a more positive space.
QUARTIER was held at Martin Luther King Park (formally known as Kent Park) on August 24th, 2019. We brought people together from all communities for a day of love and positive vibes. The event featured:
QUARTIER ALL STAR GAMES - All youth were provided with uniforms, socks and new kicks by PUMAHOOPS.
BBQ by THE PINK STOVE
Fitness Challenges by CALISTATION CANADA, FITNESS ZU & JAY "THE BULLY"
Portraits by NASKADEMINI
Free cuts by RETRO BARBERSHOP
Face painting by ASK4LOLA
We also provided 120 kids with new backpacks filled with back to school supplies right in time for the new year.
Special thank you to all the volunteers, coaches, businesses, creatives and community partners (La Maison des Jeunes de la Cote-des-Neiges & Rising Youth) who helped bring the vision to life.
