Seventh annual KidSport Day in B.C.

Triple O's will donate $1 for each retweet.

Triple O’s seventh annual KidSport Day takes place at 37 restaurants throughout the province, including Maple Ridge, on Friday, Oct. 21.

The fundraiser helps financially under-privileged kids gain life skills like teamwork and self-confidence from participating in organized sports. Donations cover annual sports registration fees for kids 18 and under, and all dollars raised go back to kids in the local community.

On KidSport Day, Triple O’s will donate a loonie from the sale of every combo to KidSport chapters across B.C., so support stays in those cities and towns. Guests also have the opportunity to lend their support by making donations at Triple O’s restaurants leading up to the big day.

Since 2010, Triple O’s has raised $191,650 and helped nearly 500 kids. This year, Triple O’s is aiming to beat last year’s tally of $52,650 and help 150 local kids in need. Every $400 raised provides one B.C. child the opportunity to play team sports for a full year.

“Triple O’s guests continue to show their team spirit by generously supporting young B.C. athletes who might otherwise be left on the sidelines,” said White Spot and Triple O’s President Warren Erhart. “Every year we shoot a little higher, and this year is no exception. Come join us for a combo on October 21 to help kids in your community.”

“Triple O’s has a proven track record of providing much-needed financial support to our organization through their amazing fundraiser,” says Pete Quevillon, director of KidSport B.C. “Every year, Triple O’s guests from all corners of the province give our young athletes a chance to play organized sports, right in the communities where funds are raised. That support goes a long way to boosting the self-confidence of these young athletes.”

• On Oct. 21, show your support by sharing the @TripleOs #SoAllKidsCanPlay on Twitter. Triple O’s will donate $1 for each retweet.
