Hockey For All Challenge Winners Donate to Friends of Hockey
The U13BB team submitted the winning video entry in the inaugural Hockey For All challenge! 

Their video featured the boys sharing their thoughts about what hockey

for all meant to them. They shared that race, gender, religion or financial means

shouldn’t matter and that everyone that wants to play hockey should be able to

play Canada’s game.


As winners of the Hockey for All Challenge, the U13BB received $250 for a team

party and $100 towards a charity of their choice that promotes diversity and

inclusivity in hockey. The U13BB chose a local charity, Friends of Hockey (FOH).

FOH is a private organization, founded in 2009, that funds all or part of a child's

hockey costs from equipment to registration. Each year FOH provides thousands of

dollars in registration fees for kids to play hockey. FOH believes that every child in

Woolwich has the right to lace up and play hockey, and it’s clear that the U13BB

boys share this same belief and so they decided to donate all of their prize winnings

to FOH.


Members of the U13BB team presented Kyle Rank, founder of FOH, with a cheque

for $350 on March 23 at the Woolwich Memorial Arena.
