Flying Colours Corp. has many team members from the surrounding communities where we operate. It is our responsibility to give back and we want to play our part in the community. We are actively involved in sponsoring, supporting and donating to a number of local organisations.
These are some of the organisations that we value and support, and information about what they do.
The PYBA was established in 2005 when two long-upstanding Peterborough basketball clubs – Saints and Storm – agreed to amalgamate into one association for the betterment of youth basketball.
The club runs recreational and rep programs for youth in from Junior Kindergarten through to Grade 12.
The Peterborough Girls Hockey Association (PGHA) promoting female hockey in Peterborough since 1980.
The league runs recreational and rep programs for female youth from U9 to U18.
The money raised by the Dragonboat Festival Peterborough helps women receive proper testing and treatment in the fight against breast cancer. Many of the participants in the festival are survivors of breast cancer. The proceeds go to Peterborough Regional Health Centre, PRHC.
The festival has made more than $CAD3.3 million since 2019CHECK. The dynamic, colourful, boat racing take place at Little Lake in Del Crary Park, downtown Peterborough.
