The third annual National Sports Day is coming up next Saturday. The day is set aside to play sports and celebrate sports on every level, from grassroot to professional.
Sports day is presented by CBC Sports, Radio-Canada Sports, ParticiPACTION and True Sport, who are working with national sporting organizations and coaches, athletes and enthusiasts across the country.
The national day of sport celebration will be marked by a compelling television event airing on CBC Sports.
