Support Our Team

It’s that time of year again folks! Last Year, Team Tommy fell to the hands of the eventual champs, Longo's DCHC in what was a great year of Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer! This year, Team Tommy looks to battle back and triumph not only against the competition, but also in a fierce battle against cancer. With your help, we were able to raise close to $50,000 last year, which puts our seven-year total in this event close to $333,000! That is truly incredible and it is only possible because of the generous support we’ve received from our family and friends. On behalf of the Longo family, we cannot thank you enough for all the support you’ve provided to us over the past seven years and are looking forward to cracking the $400,000 mark this year! Although we can’t promise you a championship (given our lack of off-season training and surplus of overweight, past their primes, ex-hockey players), we can promise you our full effort towards supporting the fight against this awful disease this year and for many years to come.

As many of you know, our story to support this great cause began in January of 2011 when we lost someone very dear to our hearts to a hard-fought battle with Leukemia, Tommy Longo. Tommy had many roles in life including: Nonno, husband, father, uncle and friend. However, for his family he was so much more than the titles he held, he was our hero. He was the man that instilled the great values that our family carries on today, the man that we owe everything to, and the man that we miss so very much and think about every single day. As always, we will be playing in honour of Tommy Longo in this year’s tournament.

A few years ago, we tragically lost a very important member of our team, Nico Iuglio. Although hockey wasn’t Nico’s favorite sport in the world (he preferred to travel at 100 miles per hour behind a boat or on his dirt bike), he would always be there watching and cheering with the biggest smile on his face and on occasion join us in a game. Team Tommy will never be the same without him out there with us. Nico was an amazing brother, son, grandson, cousin, and friend with the biggest heart in the world. He was incredibly selfless, and would do almost anything for any of us. Not a day goes by that we don’t think about Nico and we miss him so much. Once again, this year we are playing with and for Nico as well.

We are incredibly grateful for all the support you all have shown us over the past seven years, and from the bottom of our hearts we thank you for that. We are committed to this cause and will continue to be committed to it for our lifetimes. We ask for your help again this year, as we continue in the battle against our biggest opponent yet, cancer. Your donations will accelerate breakthrough research, provide much needed assistance to patients and their families, and fund cancer initiatives.

Once again, thank you very much.

Yours on the rink,

Team Tommy,
