Circle K goes ‘crazy’

Jan 29, 2014
Circle K members and supporters jump rope to raise money for pediatric trauma care.

Circle K members in California recently spent a day stomping balloons, hula hooping, jumping rope—and lots of other crazy stuff—to raise funds and awareness of their district’s Kiwanis Pediatric Trauma Program.

It was all part of the California-Nevada-Hawaii District’s Crazy Kompetition for Infants, which brought together hundreds of members from 35 Circle K clubs for two separate days of Olympic-style games and meaningful fun.

Because of its growing popularity, the annual event was split into two “kompetitions,” one in Davis of northern California, and the other in the southern community of Stanton, California. Participants raised more than US$2,000 through entry fees, which will help train pediatric doctors, nurses and first responders; purchase much-needed pediatric medical equipment and expand community outreach programs.

“Circle K members like to get ‘crazy’ and support meaningful programs,” says district Secretary Garvey Su. —Dick Isenhour
