That’s the question Hamilton’s Sarino Genovese asked himself not long ago, looking at a pile of discarded trophies he noticed in a local landfill.
In that moment Repeat Champions was born.
Now, almost 4,000 trophies later & counting, Repeat Champions is putting smiles on the faces of youth all over & bringing a glow to the hearts of all those who continue to join the ranks of this grass roots initiative. It’s a truly inspiring, feel-good story.
How does it work?
It all starts with a phone call or an email to Repeat Champions, after which volunteers fan out all over the GTA to collect unwanted trophies, saving them from clogging local landfills & giving them a new life. Like bees to honey, these volunteers go to work sorting, disassembling, cleaning & refurbishing the donated hardware. Once rejuvenated, trophies are carefully packed away & catalogued, stored & ultimately given to sporting organizations in need. The process is carefully planned & orchestrated, depending solely on the efforts of an ever-growing group of individuals & donor sponsors who have generously provided resources & time needed to make it all happen.
So, can you make a difference?
Take a look in your basement, attic, garage or storage shed for trophies of any kind, any size, that have served their purpose & could be re-purposed, then contact Repeat Champions.
Maybe you’d like to donate your time to help collect & refurbish donated trophies, or provide other resources that will aid the impact Repeat Champions is making in communities everywhere.
We want to talk to you too.
