STANTON, California; October 17th, 2015 –– Circle K International’s Cal-Nev-Ha District and its Finance and Fundraising Committee will host their annual event, Crazy Kompetition for Infants this Saturday, October 17th at Stanton Park. Money fundraised at the event is donated to the Pediatric Trauma Program (PTP). This money is used to train pediatric doctors and nurses, create and expand community outreach programs, and provide PTP safety items at a subsidized cost. Crazy Kompetition for Infants involves fun, competitive mini-games and relay races.


The event is planned by the 2015-2016 District Finance and Fundraising Committee led by District Treasurer Victoria Ortiz, a third year student at the University of California, San Diego. Members of Circle K International raise money as teams in order to compete in the relay events. This event facilitates bonding between teams of six Circle K members as they work together and compete with each other for the chance to become Crazy Komp Champions. Ultimately, this event aims to not only fundraise for Pediatric Trauma Program, but also to raise awareness of the cause and how to prevent incidences of pediatric trauma.


Ortiz states, “I’m really excited for Crazy Kompetition this year. The District Finance and Fundraising Committee and chairs have worked very hard in preparation for the event. I hope everyone that comes out is able to have fun and bond with each other.” In past years, Crazy Kompetition for Infants has raised over $2500 per year and brought over 500 attendees. This year, Ortiz is expecting a larger turnout for the event and even more funds raised for PTP. The Pediatric Trauma Program is crucial as Pediatric Trauma remains the leading cause of death and injury among children ages 14 and under in the United States.
