Many people in the community were connected in some way to Sarah, and followed her incredible story over the past few years. The one day ice hockey tournament will honor Sarah, by raising funds for children that will go directly to the leukemia and oncology department at SickKids and will go towards youth scholarships for sports and recreational programs. It will also bring plenty of awareness for Sarah’s Drive for Hope, which encourages the need for blood and bone marrow donors.
We urge our families to participate, as a player, donor, volunteer or supporter. This will be a remarkable event, and one that make a huge difference in the lives of so many. We are currently looking for individuals to join our volunteer committees in these areas:
