Can buying a burger help kids get in the game?
It can when that burger is part of Triple O’s annual fundraiser for KidSport!
From now through Sept. 28, Triple O customers and team members at Triple O’s on 64th and 144th are coming together to support local youth who need a little help with the cost of playing organized sport. The initiative is part of the annual, company-wide Triple O’s partnership and one the Surrey community has been keen to support, says franchisee and operator Teresa Troock.
“The money we raise here stays right here in our community, to help local youth,” Troock says.
KidSport is a not-for-profit organization that provides financial support to families in need, so that kids in Surrey and in communities across Canada can enjoy the benefits playing sports provides, such as physical activity, self-confidence, teamwork and friendship.
For approximately every $400 raised, a child gets the chance to play a sport for the year. Over the past eight years, the event has raise more than $350,000 for KidSport, letting nearly 875 kids enjoy the benefit of sport!
Since opening Triple O’s on 64th Avenue in Surrey, Troock is excited to with the fundraiser’s growth: from $3,200 two years ago to $5,100 last year. This year’s goal is $5,600 – enough to get 14 kids in the game!
