The seventh annual CIMA Mayor’s Trophy will be held on June 25th at the Sunnybrook Park in Toronto. CIMA President Harold Baird and Deputy President Gulzari Babber will be in Toronto to welcome Mayor Ford, Minister Jim Flaherty and MPP Christine Elliott as special guests of the seventh annual CIMA Mayor’s Trophy.

CIMA partnered with the Access & Diversity Unit of the Toronto Parks, Forestry & Recreation to launch Toronto Annual Celebration of Cricket – CIMA Mayor’s Trophy in 2005. Since then the event has grown in popularity and profile to provide Torontonians with an opportunity to showcase and celebrate Toronto’s diversity through cricket. The event also uses cricket as a vehicle to bring Toronto’s vastly diverse communities together and helps raise funds for youth cricket initiatives.

CIMA is focusing this year’s event to bring attention to the school cricket in Toronto. A school cricket tournament will be held at the Summerlea Park in Etobicoke on the June 11th and June 18th, as a preliminary event leading up to the Mayor’s Trophy. The school cricket tournament will feature West end schools competing with East end schools for the inaugural Mayor’s School Cricket Trophy.

Over the last three years, the Mayor’s Trophy event has helped provide young Toronto cricketers with cricket scholarships under the Cricket Across The Pond (CAP) program. CAP provided young Torontonians with leadership and communications skills and an opportunity to learn life skills as ambassadors of Toronto in England.. As members of the Toronto Mayor’s Cricket Team, the young Torontonians were given the opportunity to visit Lord’s Cricket Grounds in the UK to learn the history and heritage of cricket. The CAP program has had a tremendous impact on youth in our communities and has helped inspire young Torontonians towards positive pursuits in life.
