VANCOUVER — Triple O’s sixth-annual KidSport Day fundraiser will provide financial support to young British Columbians who might not otherwise have the opportunity to play organized sports.
“Triple O’s and its guests have an unbeatable track record of teaming up to help kids play team sports,” said Warren Erhart, president of White Spot and Triple O’s. “This year we’re setting our goal even higher.”
On Oct. 23, Triple O’s will donate a loonie from the sale of every burger combo to local KidSport B.C. chapters across the province. Guests can also contribute at one of 34 Triple O’s locations throughout the province from Oct. 5 to 23.
KidSport Day helps put B.C.’s underprivileged kids into organized sports such as hockey, baseball, gymnastics, lacrosse and soccer. The campaign at Triple O’s has raised $140,000 since it kicked off in 2010. This year, the company’s fundraising goal is $50,000. For every $400 raised, one child in a B.C. community gets a chance to play sports for a full year.
