Through the TELUS Champions in the Community program, Eskimos players work with amateur football teams to help develop the stars of tomorrow. They also visit schools and community groups to educate youth on the importance of nutrition and an active lifestyle, share powerful messages on anti-bullying and encourage kids to stay in school.
Due to school and hospital regulations, media wishing to attend events must contact the Eskimo Community Department at firstname.lastname@example.org the day before the event. Please note player availability is subject to change.
