Another year, another exciting rendition of the Heart & Stroke foundation's yearly Hockey for Heart tournament! I believe this will be my 10th year in a row participating and every year seems to get better and better. Much like last year, this year we are putting in two teams and really trying to ring in the donations.
I've been supporting the Heart & Stroke foundation for 10 years now. Heart disease has been a bit a bitch in my family, so I've always tried to do what little I can to contribute to kicking its ass.
Last year we blew our previous record out of the water, raising over $9700 between the teams. This year, I'm hoping we can do even better cresting over 10K in donations!
Basic pre-amble to follow....
Cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of death for Canadian men and women. I want to help change this. That’s why I’m fundraising through my own event: Heart & Stroke Hockey for Heart Ottawa Tournament - In Memory of Bill Kitchen to create more survivors.
All of the money I raise will go to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, where they’ll use it to develop life-saving treatments that bring hope to heart disease and stroke patients. In the last year alone, the Heart and Stroke Foundation has helped created 165,000 survivors of heart disease and stroke.
Please help me reach my fundraising goal by making a donation today.
It's only with your help that we can continue to fund this vital research, and return more survivors home to their loved ones.
Thank you so much for your support.
