On Saturday September 8th, we were delighted to take part in the Corporate Kids Challenge for KidSport BC! The Corporate Kids Challenge is an annual fundraiser which Ritchie Bros. presents and holds at their head office, in Burnaby.
You can learn more about this KidSportBC event, which benefits underprivileged kids by giving them the chance to play a season of organized sport, at http://www.rbauction.com/kidschallenge
This year, we were lucky to have rugby star Andrea Burk as our honourary, athletic team mate. Her enthusiasm and fun attitude were infectious, so it was awesome to play alongside her! This year, the theme was Game of Thrones. The events were therefore suitably renamed, including the Dragon Glass Spear Challenge, Games of Zones from Langara Basketball, Game of Stones from BC Lacrosse, Bow Down to Your King Archery and the Dragon Egg Challenge, amongst others.
This annual event is always a fun time and raises so much money for KidSport. Head over to our Instagram account, if you’d like to take a look at some pics from the day.
A highlight of the Corporate Kids Challenge is the Lip-Sync Battle, which our team greeting with a huge amount of energy. You can view it here. Thanks to everyone involved for an amazing day!
