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 honours Sarah by raising funds for The J’s “A Hug from Sarah” Family Crisis Fund and for the JCC Chai Sports Scholarships.
We urge our families to participate, as a player, donor, volunteer or supporter. This will be a remarkable event, and one that makes a huge difference in the lives of so many.
We are currently looking for individuals to join our volunteer committee. If you are interested in helping out in the above areas or others, please contact Lola.
