This new hockey season has been a busy busy year so far. This year I am on TWO hockey teams! But since I have a goalie partner this year sharing those teams, I am not loosing out on any games. Which means luckily I am not loosing out on any fund raising dollars!
At of the end of last year, ShutoutChildhoodCancer had a running total of $6,550.00. I hope to be able to break $10,000.00 this year. If you see the Northeast Eagles Peewee team on the ice, that may be me tending the net – Just look for the Number 40!
Please help CancerCare Manitoba by donating to the foundation. Every dollar is that much closer to helping children with cancer and that much closer to finding a cure for this horrible disease.
Tuesday Dec 5th we went to the Canada vs USA Women’s National hockey game. Excited to be able to see my hockey hero Shannon Szabados play, I made a sign and was ready to make sure she saw it. Whether she was on the ice or on the bench:
When the team came out for warm up, my excitement dropped as I discovered Shannon was NOT dressed and not skating with the team:
I was ready to leave the game! But we stuck around, watched great hockey and I got a little surprise after the game was over:
Shannon found me! – I’m never going to wash that jersey – EVER!!!
Tomorrow I officially kick off the Shutout Childhood Cancer 2017 fundraising initiative!
I have a goal of over $7000.00 to raise by the end of the season, so I need your support by matching my end of season donation, making your own contribution, liking my Tweets, Retweeting my progress during the year and Following me on Facebook and Twitter
Welcome back to another hockey season and another fundraising journey. Last year with your help, we raised $3 550.00 for CancerCare Manitoba. This year we want to blow that off the ice!
I moved up to Pee-Wee this season and all though we have only started with practices and I have no games scheduled yet, I can’t wait to work with all my supporters to end childhood cancer.
We have some fun things planned this year, though I can’t tell you what they are just yet. Follow along with me this year, Like my Tweets, Like my Facebook page and Share my story with others. I’m one 10 year old girl, imagine what we can accomplish together.
