5th Annual Auction the Trainer: March 16th


Friday March 16th is the date of our 5th annual Auction the Trainer charity event. In the past 4 years we have raised close to $20,000 in support of Right to Play. Last year we raised close to $8000, and for 2012 our goal is 10K. This year we are changing things up a bit with a local charity Athletics for Kids. Below is their Mission Statement and Goal:

Mission Statement

To work diligently and thoughtfully in providing financially disadvantaged youth in the community with greater access to organized sport in conjunction with their academic endeavours.


A4K’s overarching goal is to be there to assist any B.C. child in their dream of playing amateur sports. In other words, we want all kids to have the opportunity to play

We are really excited about the opportunity to help local BC kids afford amateur sport. Similar to last year we will be auctioning off our trainers. The highest bidder wins 15 minutes where anything goes as far as making your trainer do the exercises you hate the most. We will also be showcasing ‘group events’. A Group of trainers will do something fun and embarrassing if a certain dollar figure of pledge is met (last year Shawn shaved his head, what will it be this year…).

We will be featuring a cash raffle again this year, with tones of great prizes generously donated by clients and friends. We would appreciate any prize you might be able to provide for the raffle – nothing is too big or too small.

You are invited to come take part in the event. Friday March 16th 5-7pm at Groundwork Athletics (and for those interested till much later than that). There will be an assortment of beer, wine, and snacks. As always good times guaranteed. Don’t miss out on what is guaranteed to be a great event.
