Support Our Team
Thank you for visiting our Scotiabank Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer Team Page. We are super excited for Game Day, with most team members just hoping to survive playing from dawn-to-dusk! This is our 2nd year participating, having formed our team in 2018 after my wife, Alicia Arkell, had emergency brain surgery and was diagnosed with grade 3 anaplastic astrocytoma, an incurable form of brain cancer. During last year's opening ceremonies I was honoured to tell her story for "Why We Play" and this year I'm proud to be a Media Ambassador for the event, once again sharing Ally's journey living with cancer, with the support of PMH. We hope to inspire others to join and help raise $ for The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. All money raised goes to crucial cancer research, therapies and treatments that will ultimately save lives and provide a fighting chance to all those living with this devastating disease. I've experienced first-hand how this incredible organization helps!
While we realize reaching our team fundraising goal won't be easy, we wanted to aim high so that we could raise as much money as possible and make a truly impactful contribution in the fight against cancer. An estimated 206,200 new cases of cancer and 80,800 deaths occurred in Canada in 2017 alone. If you take into account all of the families and friends of those affected, the number of people touched by cancer would be in the millions – it’s time to take a stand against cancer. Don't do it just for our generation, but for our kids' generation and those that follow.
So I urge you to do what you can to help The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation in the fight to CONQUER CANCER IN OUR LIFETIME!
Keep loving, keep supporting and keep the faith...
