SACRAMENTO, Calif.; October 15, 2016 – Circle K International’s Cal-Nev-Ha District hosted their annual event, Crazy Kompetition for Infants on Saturday, October 15th at Tahoe Park in Sacramento. A record-breaking number of over 300 hundred college students throughout Northern California and Nevada attended the event where they competed in a series of fun, competitive mini-games and relays. The event raised over $2200 for the Pediatric Trauma Program.

This is one of two Crazy Kompetition events. The other will be held Saturday, October 22nd at Stanton Park in Stanton, California.

The Pediatric Trauma Program is a Kiwanis-based program that aims to raise money to train pediatric doctors and nurses and provide safety equipment to young children.

  • Unintentional injury is the #1 killer of children age 14 and under in the U.S.
  • Unintentional injury kills more children every year than any other cause – including disease, homicide and suicide.
    90% of these unintentional injuries can be prevented.

This year’s Crazy Kompetition for Infants was planned by the CNH Finance and Fundraising Committee and was chaired by Matthew Molloy, 4th year Computer Science and Engineering major at University of Nevada, Reno. The event consisted of team-based relays and mini-games that promoted teamwork and provided participants an opportunity to get to know each other. The teams competed throughout the day with the goal of becoming the annual Crazy Komp Champions. To participate in the event, each team made up of six Circle K International members raised money to donate. Along with the competition, Kiwanis held a workshop to educate members about the importance of the Pediatric Trauma Program.

Molloy states, “Crazy Kompetition for Infants was a blast this year. We had hundreds of Circle K’ers from all over CNH come out to fundraise for and support PTP. With the tremendous help from the Finance and Fundraising Committee, we were able to successfully select a park, organize and create games, and run the event itself.”
