The Lake of the Woods District Hospital Foundation has their Hockey for Health 3 on 3 tournament coming up in April and now is the time to register!
They're looking for teams of Novice, Atom, Peewee and Open divisions, boys and girls, men and women! All levels are invited to join in on the fun as this is a FUNdraising tournament for the hospital's CT Scan renewal fund. The tournament will tentatively run April 11-14 at both the Kenora Recreation Centre and Keewatin Memorial Arena.
"Teams sell raffle tickets, collect pledges and come up with other great ways to raise money for your hospital. Each team is given a “Fundraising Invoice” at the end of their games where they are charged $5 for every goal they scored!"
Teams are encouraged to begin their fundraising efforts as soon as they register. If you're interested in putting a team together for the Hockey for Health 3 on 3 tournament visit www.lwdhf.com or contact Andi Scheibler with any questions at [email protected] or 807-468-9861 ext 2468.
"The Lake of the Woods District Hospital Foundation is the lifeline between your community and your hospital. LWDHF raises the funds necessary to purchase new, state of the art medical equipment like the CT Scan. The new CT Scanner offers improved diagnostic capabilities, image quality and improved radiation doses as well as the ability to perform pediatric scanning on site, which was previously unavailable. The CT Scan is an essential piece of equipment and would not be available to the community if not for our committed partners and community fundraisers such as Hockey for Health 3 on 3."
Andi is the Development Coordinator for the Hospital Foundation and she joined Thursday's Afternoon Drive with Kim Leduc.
Last year's efforts:
"With many thanks to the contribution of players, family, friends and sponsors, Hockey for Health 3 on 3 for 2018 raised $46,873.11 for the CT Scan Renewal Campaign! Last year, we had 17 teams registered in 4 different divisions, who enjoyed a fun-filled 4 days of hockey at the Kenora Recreation Centre and Keewatin Memorial Arena Thursday, April 12th through to Sunday, April 15th, 2018."
