Delta Hockey Academy Female Prep Brain Cancer Fundraiser game…..
In November, 2017, we lost our precious 9-year-old niece/cousin, Nora, to a rare and currently incurable childhood brain cancer (DIPG).
In Nora’s memory, our daughter Macy and her Delta Wild, Prep Female hockey team have organized an exhibition game against the Vancouver Comets Midget AAA Female hockey team. The purpose of this game is to raise awareness, and money for Meagan’s Walk which funds brain cancer research, including DIPG, at the Toronto Sick Kids Hospital.
It will be an exciting, action-packed competition. These 14- to 18-year-old ladies will demonstrate how advanced female hockey has become in Canada. The results of their years of hard practice, unwavering focus and excellent coaching will surely amaze you.
There will also be a puck toss and other fundraising activities in which you can engage.
