So incredibly proud of this team. For the second year in a row, we took the Gold Medal spot at this year’s Guts + Glory challenge hosted by the Covenant House (Toronto).
Covenant House helps homeless youth move from a life on the streets to a life with a future. Since 1982, the organization has served more than 90,000 young people.
Our team raised $24,231.00 for last night’s event. (Total raised for Covenant House – +$650,000.00).
Once again this year I’ll be serving as Board of Governor for Scotiabank Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer (RHCC), in support of raising funds for ground-breaking research at The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, one of the top 5 research centres in the world. Officially the world’s largest road hockey fundraising event, the 8th annual Scotiabank Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer provides an opportunity for corporations and community leaders to rally around a common goal:
Conquer Cancer In Our Lifetime
In 2015, the event established two official Guinness World Records, and subsequently broke them in 2017 to reach #1 worldwide.
It’s always fun, as an industry, to come together for a great cause. This event allows us to play this country’s national sport with our industry friends while raising funds for a world-class institution that’s transforming cancer care for Canadians.
- Scotiabank Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer is a one-day road hockey event in which teams play five games throughout the day. In addition to some old-fashioned road hockey fun, there will be live bands, a massive sponsor expo, onsite massage therapy and over 50 celebrities supporting the event.
- Last year’s event included over 1,700 participants and raised over $2.6M.
- Since its launch in 2011, Scotiabank Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer has raised more than $18 million for research at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.
