Roundup: Three Fundraising Campaigns to Watch this Summer

Research | August 12, 2014

From the world’s largest sandbox, to the longest soccer game in the world, to a lengthy ride across Canada, here are three campaigns that are going the distance on Chimp this summer. Check them out and join in on the fun!

1. Fun in the World’s Largest Sandbox
August 16, 2014 | Vancouver, BC


Remember those days spent playing in sandboxes as kids? On Saturday August 16th, you’re invited to relive those memories and create new ones in the world’s largest sandbox — all in support of children’s mental health. It’ll be a day of sun (let’s hope), sand, and fun activities for the whole family at Second Beach in Stanley Park.

The Chimp team will be on hand throughout the day powering donations so stop by and say hello! Check out the event here.

2. A Really Long Soccer Game
August 15 – 17, 2014 | Burnaby, BC


The current world record for the longest indoor soccer game is 32 hours. This month, Athletics for Kids and Canlan Ice Sports are attempting to break that record with 36 hours of continuous play from August 15th – 17th. That’s one really long soccer game!

Teams are raising money to provide the opportunity for kids to play sports, no matter their economic circumstances. Cheer them on in the Athletics 4 Kids Campaign.

3. Chefs for Oceans
July 1 – September 12, 2014 | Across Canada


Ned Bell, Executive Chef at the Four Seasons Vancouver, is pedalling across Canada to raise awareness and funds for sustainable seafood.

“This journey began two years ago as a crazy idea. I wanted to ride across the country to do my part to raise awareness for healthy oceans, lakes and rivers. And now here we are.”
Ned Bell

Ned started his coast-to-coast journey in St. John’s, Newfoundland on July 1st and wraps up in Vancouver, BC on September 12th. Find out which communities Ned will be riding through and show your support in the Chefs for Oceans Campaign.
