Kitchener , ON
The root of sports is character. Not just character on the court, but character in your community. Last year our team collected clothing for refugees within our community. This year several parents were interested in helping raise money for Cancer. But, we also wanted the kids to understand the impact Cancer has within our community. So, we reached out the HopeSpring Cancer Support Centre in Kitchener-Waterloo. The team decided to do this in January to correspond with HopeSpring's fundraising. At a local tournament at Conestoga College, our players grouped themselves into teams and solicited donations. Additionally, some players took to their streets further collecting money for the cause. In total these young men raised over $400 for HopeSpring! These funds will help the organization to continue the amazing work they do within our community!
