As a non-profit organization, MRC is committed to making our programs accessible to all in our community who want to participate, regardless of their ability to pay. MRC relies on the generosity of many donors to fulfill its mission. Program registration fees cover about 85% of MRC’s budget, which means we need to raise an additional $150,000, annually. Each year we host multiple fundraisers to help make up the difference.


It is only through the many generous donations and sponsorships from our community that MRC's scholarship programs, ice rink, and youth tennis and youth hockey programs are made possible. A gift to MRC has a lasting impact!


MRC is a non-profit and runs smoothly because of staff and volunteers working together. For more information, contact Sarah Glenn at
