First off, I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit my Scotiabank Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer personal Player Page. Scotiabank Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer is a Dawn-to-Dusk fundraising event with the proceeds going towards The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.
I have been fundraising for Princess Margaret ever since they saved my life in 2004. Since that time a number of my close family and friends have been affected by cancer. This year I have decided to dedicate my fundraising efforts to Mike Kemp and his family. Mike lost his battle with cancer this past June, leaving behind his wife Joanne, daughter Halle (13) and son Jason (10). Mike fought courageously for six years before passing at just 48 years old.
There will be over 206,200 estimated new cases of cancer in Canada this year alone. 80,800 of these cases will result in deaths - it's time to take a stand against this devastating disease. That's why I've decided to participate in Scotiabank Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer and help raise money to support The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation in their mission to eradicate cancer and improve the lives of those living with cancer.
With the generous support and donations from my friends and family I intend on reaching my goal of $15,000 so I can truly help make a difference in the fight against cancer! It’s time to get off the bench and into the game, so please consider supporting my fundraising campaign a donation – any amount helps.
