In London, it is estimated that over 2,000 men, women and children are homeless on any given night, but together we can change this statistic.
Due to C-19, the super-fun-live-on-ice-bells-and-whistles-congregated-pro-am Hockey Helps the Homeless tournament could not take place. The event's cancellation could have been devastating. Thankfully, the live event has been re-imagined as the Hockey Helps the Homeless Canada Life Cup, a peer-to-peer fundraising extravaganza in support of Merrymount Family Crisis Centre, Mission Services and Unity Project for Relief of Homelessness in London.
Anyone can play - - no skates or skills required - - and that's why I am participating!
So please, let us muster the spirit of the game and give for the goal of supporting our community’s most marginalized and vulnerable, and the frontline workers that serve them. We need your help now more than ever.
Be a game changer today by supporting the cause. Together, with your support, we can reach our fundraising goal and shutout homelessness in London. Hockey tournament or not, it’s bigger than the game and we can all be part of the solution.
