Project to provide pennants for the Cuban team at the Pan Am Games

2015.Cuba Pan Am TorontoCuba is sending a team of 450 athletes to perform in the Pan Am Games being held in and around Toronto in July. In these big international gatherings it is common practice for teams to exchange pins and little pennants as a gesture of friendship. This can be quite costly for teams from small and developing countries. In this case, the Cuban team is operating under tremendous financial constraints due to the US economic blockade of Cuba.

We would like to contribute to covering the cost of a pennant of the Cuban Olympic Committee for the use of the Cuban team during the Pan Am Games. We can get 3,000 pennants produced for $4,000.00. The CNC is contributing $500.

If you can contribute towards this cost of producing the Cuban pennant, this gesture of solidarity would also encourage the Cuban team a great deal to know they have such good friends in Canada.

Thank you for your consideration. No amount is too small.

PS. If we can raise a second $4,000.00 we can also produce the Cuban pennant for the Para Pan Am games!

If you are able to make a contribution, please notify the CNC at this e-mail:

A special trust account has been established for these contributions. Make out cheques or money orders to:
