Canadian Tire Donates $10,000 to Jumpstart Charities For Goals Scored by Wickenheiser at Sochi 2014

TORONTO, Feb. 20, 2014 /CNW/ - As premiere national partners of the Canadian Olympic Team, Canadian Tire congratulates Hayley Wickenheiser and Sport Chek congratulates Meaghan Mikkelson on their gold medal win for Canada's Women's Ice Hockey Team at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games.
