Cambridge, Ontario - June 10, 2014
TriGator for Kids is a triathlon designed for kids aged 3 to 14 held in Elmira, Ontario on Saturday, June 14th. Hugely successful, this event has helped raise nearly $200,000 for charity, with hundreds of local children having taken part over the year. In 2013 TriGATOR helped 1,400 kids be active through subsidies for YMCA memberships, along with providing funds for various swimming, soccer and baseball programs.
TriGatorWorldline, the Superhero voice and data provider, has become a major sponsor of TriGator this year because it’s a local charity focused on health and well being. Does it scream “Superhero Kids” or what? The TriGator is a kids’ triathlon race with age appropriate Swim-Bike-Run distances for children and this is the fifth year for this event.
Proceeds are donated to Canadian Tire’s Jumpstart®charity. Jumpstart® is based on the idea that all kids should have the chance to run, skate, play, and grow. It’s a community-based program that helps kids aged 4-18 participate in organized sports and recreation such as hockey, dance, soccer and swimming, so they can develop important life skills, self esteem and confidence. For more information check out Canadian Tire Jumpstart®.
John Stix – Worldline CMO and Co-Founder said, “We’re super excited to be one of the main sponsors this year, and our team is heading up to Elmira to volunteer and help the hundreds of local children do what they do – and that’s be Superhero kids.”
