As The Head Coach for the 2017/18 London Jr. Knight Minor Atom AA White Team one of my initiatives this year with my hockey team was to come up with a way that our players could give back to the community. As a volunteer with Make-A-Wish Southwestern Ontario I felt this would be an ideal organization to support.
During the early part of our season, we as a team met with representatives from Make-A-Wish and I am very pleased to say that we have now been assigned a family, and as a team have decided that our fundraiser will be a Skate a Thon. The premise of the Skate a Thon will be to have each player and coach skate 100 laps on The Western Fair London City Rink as a team over a two hour period.
We have been able to Secure ice on Saturday, February 24, 2018 from 11:00 am to 1:00pm.
The goal is to raise $10,000 to grant this wish
Yours in hockey,
