Triple O’s and KidSport Help Kids Get in the Game

September 25th, 2013 @ 10:54am (PT) by Rebecca Bollwitt

This fall you can support KidSport, getting children active in organized sports, when you visit participating Triple O’s locations. Until September 29th, every $1 donation made in-store will support registration fees for children in BC.

The public will be able to contribute to their local KidSport chapter when ordering off the Triple O’s menu in any of the 31 participating locations. Funds raised during the three-week period (that began on September 9th) will help kids with financial barriers experience the benefits of sport participation by covering the registration fees for a sport season of their choice.

“As KidSport celebrates it’s 20th birthday, we are thrilled to partner with Triple Os once again to ensure that more kids have the opportunity to play a season of sport,” said KidSport BC Director, Pete Quevillon. “Triple Os continues to demonstrate their belief in the importance of community involvement with their support of KidSport with this initiative. This campaign will once again get more kids off the sidelines and into the game and bring smiles to the faces of a great many kids and their families. Thanks Triple Os!”

In 2012 alone KidSport enabled 6,234 children to play sport across the province. Established by Sport BC in 1993, KidSport is now present in 41 communities across British Columbia and over 175 communities across Canada. With assistance from partners like Triple O’s, KidSport BC continues to expand its reach to ensure all children across the province have the opportunity to experience the power of sport.

In addition to the in-store donations, on Friday, September 27, 2013 you can simply re-tweet to give. Check out Triple O’s on Twitter and when you re-tweet and share promotional details about this campaign, Triple O’s will donate an extra $1 to KidSport.

To promote this partnership and support KidSport, Triple O’s has also offered up four burger combo meal vouchers for a lucky Miss604 reader. Here’s how you can enter to win:

  • Leave a comment with a sport or playtime activity that you loved as a child (1 entry)
  • Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)
RT to enter to win a @tripleos prize from @miss604 + support @KidSportBC #donate4kids http://ow.ly/pd1pR

Four vouchers for burger combos will be awarded. I will draw one winner at random from all entries on Monday, September 30, 2013 at 3:00pm.

Update The winner is jeff!
