KidSport & Triple O’s Re-Tweet Day of Support

Comments 74 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Triple O’s, makers of some of BC’s best burgers on the go, is supporting KidSport BC once again this month through an in-store and online campaign.

Following a successful partnership in 2011 that raised $20,000 for KidSport BC, Triple O’s will launch a two week promotion for the same cause from June 25, 2012 to July 8, 2012.

The public will be able to contribute to their local KidSport chapter when ordering off the Triple O’s menu in any of the 29 participating locations. Funds raised during the two-week period will help kids with financial barriers experience the benefits of sport participation by covering the registration fees for a sport season of their choice.

Why KidSport? It provides support to children in order to remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sport. Sport got me through some tough years as a child and as a teenager and I believe every child should be able to have the opportunity to play sports — and not let the cost of equipment or fees stand in their way.

In addition to donating in-store, guests can help raise money for KidSport by re-tweeting the Triple O’s Twitter account with the tag #donate4kids. All re-tweets received TODAY will equal a $1 donation to KidSport (up to $5,000).

To help get the word out, I have 20 burger combo gift cards to give away (value $10). Here’s how you can enter to win:

  • Leave a comment on this post listing your fondest sports memory (1 entry)
  • Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)
RT & @TripleOs will donate $1 to @KidSport & enter you to win a gc via @Miss604 #donate4kids

Enter to win a gift card and donate to a great local cause all in one shot! Since today’s the day for the re-tweet campaign, I’m only running this contest until midnight tonight. I will then draw 20 winners for each of the burger combo gift cards.

To learn more about KidSport, follow them on Twitter or Facebook and support them through Triple O’s this month.

    I don’t know if I could pick an absolute fondest sports memory (there are SO many) but here’s my favourite recent one. This year my youngest sister “graduated” from youth soccer. With three of us, this means my dad was around for 19 kid-seasons (it’s totally a legit quantity, like man-hours) of girls’ soccer and he loved every cold, wet, miserable minute of it. Watching him tear up as he presented his girls with their medals at the Port Moody Soccer Club awards night was really touching!

  22. rewFriday, July 6th, 2012 — 11:32am PDT

    My fondest memory in sports has to be my second year of minor hockey when I scored my very first goal in a game. I was sooooooo happy that day. Might have been up there with one of my fondest moments ever.

  23. LeahFriday, July 6th, 2012 — 11:37am PDT

    My fondest sports memory was all of the provincial tournaments I went to in high school soccer. Team sports are so great.

    Would LOVE to win this! Lots of childhood memories at White Spot

  29. DonnaFriday, July 6th, 2012 — 12:00pm PDT

    I did not play a lot of sports as a child, so I would have to say my favorite sports memories are:

    The first goal my son scored in his first year of minor hockey is definitely tied with when my daughter’s cheer squad finally won first place at their yearly competition.

  30. MichelleFriday, July 6th, 2012 — 12:05pm PDT

    My fondest sports memory was going to my very first Canuck game the first year they came in the league …. even though I was sitting in the very last row of the Coliseum!

    It would definitely have to be when we won the Hockey Gold in 2010! The entire city erupted simultaneously. An absolute once in a lifetime experience.

    Meeting my husband while playing softball.

    My fondest sports memories are playing basketball for 5 years with some of the best girls I’ve known! Friends for life! 🙂

  35. KentFriday, July 6th, 2012 — 12:39pm PDT

    Despite being the underdogs to a loaded team all season long, we managed to pull off a late rally and win the league title when I played fastpitch back in grade 6. It was nice to hoist that trophy when no one gave us a chance.

  36. JennieFriday, July 6th, 2012 — 12:50pm PDT

    Volunteering at Canada Hockey Place standing behind the net watching the “Golden Goal” shoot into the net. One of the best memories of my life. I’ve never seen so many grown men shed tears of joy 😀

    Bundled up in tatters, skating on a frozen pond in New Brunswick with a gaggle of kids. Frozen and laughing and scared all at the same time.

  51. HisayoFriday, July 6th, 2012 — 7:18pm PDT

    Fondest has to be when I placed 1st in the 1500 and it was against a girl that was expected to win easily. Changed my school year you might say

  55. ShelleyFriday, July 6th, 2012 — 9:26pm PDT

    I always loved it when my parents and my sister would come and watch my baseball games, especially when I was hitting home runs!

  56. TYFriday, July 6th, 2012 — 9:28pm PDT

    Doing the Sun Run the first time.

  60. IrisFriday, July 6th, 2012 — 11:01pm PDT

    Watching my children play soccer over the years has lead to many favorites. One year the soccer final game was played in the driving rain and the field turned to mud. The ball no longer bounced and just went “splat” as it landed. The girls tried to kick the ball and it flung the mud everywhere. It makes me laugh when I think about that game.

  61. shellyFriday, July 6th, 2012 — 11:37pm PDT

    elementary sports day

  62. Jake HamiltonFriday, July 6th, 2012 — 11:59pm PDT

    Watching my first son score his first lacrosse goal or playing catcher in his first baseball game…very proud!!

  63. StephanieSaturday, July 7th, 2012 — 8:58pm PDT

    Watching my daughter’s volleyball team win their first game after a saeson of loosing.

  64. AmySaturday, July 7th, 2012 — 11:27pm PDT

    My best memory of sports are the track and field days in elementary school with the whole school district!

    Winning my first swim race at age 7 🙂

  67. Erica SonSunday, July 8th, 2012 — 12:55pm PDT

    The fondest memory of sports has to be the time I first learned soccer from my dad. I was clumsy but dad was patient and taught me with encouragement 🙂

  68. chrissyMonday, July 9th, 2012 — 11:30am PDT

    T-ball with my parents cheering me on! That was the extent of my ‘sports’ career.

    Teaching with Vancouver Adaptive Snow Spots on grouse mountain: I was instructing a very very cautious 13 year old girl with a cognitive disability. When I suggested I time her with my iPod, she became so fiercely competitive that she forgot all her hesitations about going fast and cut her time in half on the next run. Explosive smiles all around.

  73. CaresseFriday, July 13th, 2012 — 9:15am PDT

    I loved sports day during elementary school!
