TechPong - Supporting Britannia Secondary School’s Youth

TechPong is an annual heart-racing ping pong tournament for charity organized by Chimp, Unbounce and Science World on October 19th. For the 3rd year, Appnovation will send our best doubles team and solo team to duke it out against other Vancouver companies.

This year they are expecting 1000 attendees to make it the biggest TechPong yet!

Each edition of TechPong has its own charity theme. For 2017, all proceeds will be donated towards youth education and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education initiatives.

Through a nomination period and a vote, our employees chose to help students in our community, the Downtown Eastside, who are enrolled at Britannia Secondary School. 33% of the families enrolled at Britannia earn less than $30,000/year and 27% of the families are single parents. Over 50% of Britannia’s students are not able to pay their student fees.

The Downtown Eastside is our community. Our funds raised over the next month will be used to encourage students to learn about science, technology, engineering or math through textbook subsidies, field trip subsidies and enrichment opportunities.

You can help us raise funds for Britannia Secondary School by donating here:

We are aiming to raise $2000 by October 19th.

Thanks in advance!
