Thornhill Rebels Black and The Faustina Fury – Minor Novice Selects score 100 goals before the game even begins!

On October 20th something special happened on the way to the rink. The two teams organized an event that would see each hockey player bring along his/her gently used stuffed animal and send it on a journey across the Atlantic Ocean. The comfort, security and happiness that these stuffed animals once provided to our children will now have their magic warm the hearts of children in Kenya. To see some players giving one last hug before saying goodbye and sending their little treasures off to comfort another child is truly priceless.

In Canada, this beautiful game of hockey brings our families together on cold wintery nights. It’s our collective goal to build compassionate and courageous young leaders of tomorrow. And that’s a game changer!”
