Hockey Fights Cancer Campaign
As an association, it's important for our young athletes to actively engage in a meaningful cause that directly benefits those in our own community. This year, we're choosing to support the Canadian Cancer Society through our participation in the Hockey Fights Cancer Campaign for the months of November and December.

For the months of November and December, in honour of the millions of Canadians fighting cancer, we are asking all teams to tape their sticks in purple and wears a white cancer ribbon sticker on their helmets (ribbons and tape will be provided).  This small gesture signifies our collective commitment to this vital cause and our solidarity with those confronting cancer's challenges.

Some of you may not be aware that one of the U12A boys Woolwich Minor Hockey families, Todd Roes, has been fighting a three year battle against terminal lung cancer.  Erin Roes and her son’s U12A team have launched an online campaign for Hockey Fights Cancer with the Canadian Cancer Society.  As an Association we can use this site to make our donations and join the boys Woolwich Minor Hockey Association to raise funds.  They have set an ambitious goal, but they we're confident with everyone's effort to share the link on social media with family, friends, co-workers and local businesses that we can achieve this goal together.  Let's see what we can accomplish together!
