Big O Tires donates $30,000 to Shriners Hospitals for Children

Shriners Hospitals for Children — Salt Lake City is excited to announce Big O Tires Utah as the presenting sponsor for the 2019 Walk for LOVE, donating $30,000! The fifth annual Walk for LOVE is September 21, 9 a.m.

A dedicated community citizen, Big O Tires Utah pooled resources from its 40 stores from Logan to Richfield to donate their highest amount to date to the Salt Lake City Shriners Hospital, tripling their 2018 donation.

“All of us independent owners at Big O Tires want to keep giving back to our communities,” said Max Hansen, Kaysville Big O Tires owner. “Children are a big part of our world in Utah, and if we can help Shriners Hospital make lives better for kids in need, that is our commitment.”

Known for providing the highest quality care to children with orthopaedic conditions, Shriners Hospitals for Children — Salt Lake City will direct Big O’s donation to further its mission of delivering care regardless of a family’s ability to pay.

“We are deeply grateful for Big O Tires’ generous donation. It is being directed to prosthetics and mobility services as a benefit to the children we serve,” said Kevin Martin, administrator at Shriners Hospitals for Children — Salt Lake City. “For us, a $30,000 donation is significant and will go a long way to help our kids!”

The Salt Lake City Shriners Hospital is a 40-bed specialty facility, with comprehensive in-house orthopaedic services, including wheelchair and seating services, therapy services, a motion analysis center, and a pediatric orthotic and prosthetics lab.

“Our Big O services are all designed to keep families safe in their road travels,” said Hansen. “In a way, our services protect, in part, the excellent health care services provided by Shriners [Hospitals]. Shriners helps improve a child’s health. We help provide safety as they travel and explore.”
