Support the Jackson Wright Memorial Athletic Award Endowment at the University of Calgary

Jackson was a happy, athletic kid who grew up watching varsity sport at a variety of universities and colleges across Canada. We have established this Award in Jackson's memory to recognize our family's commitment to CIS sport, Jackson's love for sport, and those parts of Canada that are so special to our family. Please give as generously as you can. Jackson was struck and killed by an out control vehicle while playing on our front lawn in Fredericton, NB. He was eight years old.
