Triple O’s breaks record for the kids

KidSport fundraiser raises $95K, helping 240 underprivileged kids play sports

Triple O’s eighth annual KidSport fundraiser scored big results for charity by raising a record-breaking $95,718, helping 240 B.C. kids grow their confidence with a year of sports.

Sept. 29 was KidSport Day at Triple O’s 38 participating restaurants throughout B.C., coupled with their 20th anniversary celebrations, thousands of guests helped provide financially underprivileged children the opportunity to play team sports.

On KidSport Day, Triple O’s donated a loonie from the sale of every combo to a local KidSport BC chapter.

An additional 20 cents from their 20th anniversary menu items were donated between Sept. 10 – 29. Every $400 raised gives a child the opportunity to play their sport of choice for a full year. Cash donations were also received by supportive guests throughout the month and @TripleOs donated a dollar for every retweet with the hashtag #SoALLKidsCanPlay.

Since the fundraiser’s inception, the initiative has raised $350,000, helping 875 kids build their confidence and skills through sports.
