Hey Crunchers!

We hope you are getting ready to conquer the Coquitlam Crunch Challenge on June 1st!  Again this year, we’re not just challenging ourselves physically – we’re also rallying behind a great cause: KidSport.

For the second year running, we’re proud to support KidSport in their mission to help kids in the Tri-Cities play sports. Last year, your incredible support made a tangible difference in the lives of local children, and this year, we’re aiming even higher.

Because of you and other donors, these kids will get the opportunity to learn many of the life skills that most of us learned and take for granted – teamwork, goal setting, time management, accepting failure and constructive criticism – as well as meeting new friends, building their confidence and becoming more physically active. In addition, their parents may become more connected with their community which could also lead to a variety of supports for these families too.  Pretty awesome!

Every year KidSport helps 300-400 kids in the Tri-Cities play a season of sport. Most of these kids otherwise wouldn’t have had the chance to play. With the dramatic increase in the cost of living, many families aren’t even considering getting their kids involved in sports.

By participating in the Coquitlam Crunch Challenge this year, you’ll not only be challenging yourself physically but also making a difference in the lives of local kids. Every step you take up that steep incline will be a step towards ensuring that more children in our community have the chance to experience the joy and benefits of sports.

But that’s not all – KidSport will be joining us at the event and collecting gently used sports equipment in good condition and no older than 7 years old. Please note that we won’t be able to accept large fitness equipment like treadmills, weightlifting equipment, etc. This is a fantastic opportunity to declutter your sports gear while supporting a great cause!

Spread the word, gather your friends and family, and let’s make this year’s Coquitlam Crunch Challenge the most memorable yet!

See you at the top!
