September is coming! All the noble families of "Westeros Coast" are preparing for the Game of Thrones-themed 2018 KidSport/Ritchie Bros. CORPORATE KiDS CHALLENGE on Saturday, September 8th. This will be an epic battle unlike anything ever seen here at House Ritchie, with fun, music, sports and unruly fire-breathing dragons run amok! Ok we might have made that last part up.

In 2017, the Ritchie Bros. Corporate Kids Challenge raised more than $ 538,000+(including a $400,000 contribution from the Province of BC) for KidSport BC, giving thousands of kids the chance to play a season of sport.

This year's KidSport Throne Throwdown includes:

  • Meeting, greeting & competing with OLYMPIC ATHLETES & LOCAL CELEBRITIES
  • Playing fun sports day activities, "slaying" the competition and more in this Kingdom-conquering charitable team building event
  • Participating in an exciting Ritchie Bros. LIVE CHARITY AUCTION
  • Enjoying complimentary Triple O's lunch, dinner, and refreshments, including beer & wine
  • Swag bags and acting like a KID again

Baratheon bonus gives your team a big edge:

  • Sign up another team and get entered into a draw for a suite for a Vancouver Whitecaps 2019 regular-season game and 100 points! (no deadline)
  • Registration fee of $5000, plus:
    • 50 points if you sign up between April 1 and July 1
    • 25 points if you sign up between July 2 and August 7

Prepare for battle in 3 easy steps:

About the Corporate Kids Challenge

The Corporate Kids Challenge is an annual fundraising event presented by Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers at the company's headquarters in Burnaby, BC, Canada. All proceeds go to support KidSport BC. Corporate teams from the Greater Vancouver area team up with Olympians, professional athletes and local celebrities, and then face off in a series of fun sports day challenges (think tug-of-war). The day concludes with a live and silent charity auction featuring auction items donated by local companies and members of the business community. The first Corporate Kids Challenge was held in 2009.

About KidSport

All kids should be given the opportunity to develop healthy lifestyles, no matter the financial barriers that may exist. Staying physically active helps encourage children to maintain healthy habits throughout their whole lives. The challenges that come with playing sports also teach children valuable life lessons and skills including leadership, hard work, dedication and self-confidence.

KidSport was established in 1993 by Sport BC. KidSport is a community based sport-funding program that provides grants for children 18 and under to participate in a sport season of their choice. There are 40 community chapters in BC and over 175 chapters across Canada. With the help from dedicated corporate partners, KidSport works to fulfill its mission of eliminating the financial barriers to sport participation, ‘So ALL Kids Can Play!'
