You might be wondering who started all this and why we've worked so hard on it, year after year?
"I love hockey, and serving in my community. This tournament was a great way to combine them both. It started off as a school project, and turned into a great family day! I have been able to raise a lot of money for children’s charities around the city, and around the world. As many of you may know my life has been extremely affected by concussions, so this year's tournament hits very close to home. There is an unbelievable need for concussion education in the schools, and there is ground breaking research currently being done in our city to both diagnose and treat concussions. I would like to be a part of helping youth to get the medical help they need to fully recover. "
"For the past four years I have watched Coral organize this tournament. I have been amazed at how someone so young could do so much for their community. I look up to her for what she has done, and I am excited to have the opportunity to help her raise money, and to participate in this event. I look forward to following in her footsteps in raising money for children’s charities that need it. "
