2018 will be the 8th consecutive year team LEX will participate in this event to raise money for cancer research. Most of the team have been there every year in memory of Alexis and others, and those battling various forms of cancer.
2017 was extra special as our team raised over $35,000 - more than any other year - a leading community-based team (of 24) - and 11th of 154 teams. Steven Levitt and Rick Wronzberg were able to participate in the Celebrity / top fundraisers hockey game against some of our hockey heroes of the past.
Our celebrity was Dave "Tiger" Williams - who was quoted in a video later that day stating that he "played with an awesome group" (he also stated that he was the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd star). During the celebrity / top fundraiser game, he was the only celebrity not to cover his team jersey with the red one the celebrities were supposed to wear. It was emotional seeing two LEX 28 jerseys in the rink in front of hundreds of people - even the video / pictures picked up the picture of LEX on the sleeve. He had glowing comments about us when Rick saw him the next day at an autograph signing with Al Iafrate at our friend, Hersh Borenstein's store - Frozen Pond.
Alexis lost her 6+ year war with acute lymphoblastic leukemia ("ALL") on December 29, 2010 while in Tel Aviv (28th in Toronto) recovering from the experimental haplo-identical stem cell transplant and t-cell therapy as a result of a liver infection. Despite the many ups and downs she encountered, she was strong throughout. Over the past 7+ years we have seen and read about other significant advances in cancer treatment - cancer research is evolving every day - your continued support does help find cures / treatment for cancer.
The treatments / procedures Lex had in Israel are now being used in Canadian hospitals including Sick Kids.
Thank you for you continued support.
