This March Toronto Maple Leafs Alumni will face off against Canadian Armed Forces members from Garrison Toronto to support of Wounded Warriors Canada (WWC).
The Heroes Hockey Challenge combines two Canadian icons, Canada’s finest hockey players and the country’s finest soldiers to deliver a unique, family-friendly entertainment event, this time at the Mattamy Athletic Centre at the Gardens, Toronto.
“The partnership between HHC and WWC couldn’t be stronger, and funds raised will support the wide-range of national programs and services Wounded Warriors Canada provides for our ill and injured Canadian Armed Forces members, veterans and their families,” said Scott Maxwell, executive director, Wounded Warriors Canada.
Heroes Hockey Challenge raises funds to support ill and injured Canadian Armed Forces members, veterans, their families, and families of the fallen, shining the spotlight on some of this nation’s greatest hockey heroes for the benefit of Canada’s unsung military heroes.
“In its fourth year, the Heroes Hockey Challenge continues to place our nation’s military heroes in front of their hockey heroes. This has proven to be an extremely powerful experience for all involved and most importantly our men and women in uniform,” said Maxwell.
Founded by military brat Glenn Cumyn and owned by the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry Foundation Heroes Hockey Challenge is a series of charitable hockey fundraising events that take place annually in communities across Canada. With games being held in Calgary and Vancouver in 2012, Abbotsford in 2013 and Edmonton in 2014, the event has raised over $200,000 to date.
Cumyn continues to support his country, especially his family and friends as he has five direct family members and countless friends serving in the Canadian Armed Forces.
