Highlights from the first annual Corporate Kids Challenge on September 12th, 2010 held at Ritchie Bros.' international headquarters in Burnaby, British Columbia. Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers presented this one-day fundraising extravaganza benefiting KidSport BC. Corporate teams and Olympians competed against each other in old-school team sports, followed by a unique fundraising auction.
Hundreds of people came out on a beautiful rainy Sunday and proved they are non-spectators who are ready to get involved and make a difference. Together we raised more than CA$270,000 for KidSport BC and we couldn't be more proud.
KidSport (http://www.kidsportcanada.ca/) believes that no kid should be left on the sidelines; that's why they help remove the financial barriers that prevent kids from getting in the game.
Remember that FUNDRAISING IS NOT A SPECTATOR SPORT. We look forward to getting even more people in the game next year. Thank you all for your help and support. By getting in this game, you've helped give a child a chance to get in theirs.
