Ajax Mayor’s Cricket Festival
Ajax: On Saturday July 28th, Corporate Canada Cricket Club along with the presenting partner, CIBC, and the Community Charity Partners, Heart & Stroke Foundation and Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation hosted the 2nd Ajax Mayor’s Cricket Festival at Ajax Cricket Club located at 615 Monarch Avenue in which the three adult teams of Ajax Cricket Club, Asapient-Thunderbolts and CIBC and U13 teams of Durham Cricket Academy participated and showcased their cricketing abilities. Asapient-Thunderbolts led by Riaz Raihan stood as the winner and Ajax Cricket Club as the runner-up of the esteemed Ajax Mayor’s Cricket Festival.
The festival provided a unique opportunity to the charity partners to showcase their programs and services to the communities in the Durham and Peel Regions, in general, and Ajax, in particular and encourage youth and adults to adopt sports (cricket) as a vehicle for an active and healthy lifestyle and showcase their batting, bowling, wicket keeping, and fielding skills on the field. In all, $500 each were raised for both the charities.
