Kellee Spendlow's happy to be behind the bench. She was with her daughter at the Hockey for Health tournament in Kenora.
"I just like them getting out there and playing hockey together," said Spendlow, as her daughter Rayah looked on.
"They're not worrying about the score. They're not worrying about the penalties. It's all for fun," Spendlow continued
Proceeds from the tournament helped pay for a new CT Scanner.
According to the foundation, each team is given a fundraising invoice at the end of their games, where they are charged $5 for every goal they scored. This year’s proceeds will go towards the $1 million CT Scan Renewal Project.
Hospital staff say the current CT is 12 years old and parts are no longer manufactured for repairs. Over 4,300 scans were performed last year for diagnoses and treatment of things such as strokes, internal trauma, cancer, blood clots and head injuries.
