Participate in the Adult’s Sports Day and Help out Some Great Causes

Ever just want to let loose and have some old school fun?  Well, now you can and help out a good cause in the process.  On Saturday August 28, an organization called My Loud Speaker is holding a not-for-profit Adult’s Sports Day at the Maggie Benson Field at SFU.

This organization is dedicated to helping the new generation, or NewGens as they like to call them, reach out into the community and corporate world and make their mark.  They also like to help out non-profit organizations and that is how this event came into place.

This Sport’s Day has been organized as a way to not only relive those fun times when you were a kid, but it is also to help raise awareness and money for various non-profit organizations.  The games will be just like those you played in elementary school, but with an adult twist.

So here’s how it works.  Once you gather a team of 5-7 people go to http://sportsday4grownups.wordpress.com/register/ and follow the instructions to register your team.  All the teams will be assigned 1 of 4 colours, with each representing a different non profit:

  1. Red – Seva Canada Society
  2. Blue – Muscular Dystrophy Foundation
  3. Orange – ABC Life Literacy Canada
  4. Green – Global Agents for Change

The colour that wins the most points will get 50% of the event’s proceeds for their non-profit organization.  Also, if you register before August 22, you will be entered to win free tickets for Kooza by Cirque du Soleil.

This is a great way to get out and have some fun with your friends, family or coworkers.  But, if you cannot participate, you can always volunteer and help make this event a success.  This is a huge event and volunteers are needed to help out in all aspects.  So if you’re interested in volunteering, check out Symplicity for all the details.

Also, if you would like to learn more about My Loud Speaker, be sure to visit their website at http://www.myloudspeaker.ca/ or follow them on Twitter or Facebook.  They too are always looking for volunteers so if you are intrigued by this organization, do check it out.

And don’t forget to mark August 28 on your calendar.  Come out and enjoy this grown-up version of Sport’s Day and help raise money for some great causes.
