The Maple Leaf Athletic Club’s first Hockey Fights Cancer pink game was in November 2014 and was hosted by the REM 15AA team. They raised over $14,000 for the Alberta Cancer Foundation and personally presented the cheque and have the honor of having their names on the donors wall at the Cross Cancer Institute. The funds raised were done so by all 19 players who worked hard for the cause as many of them had family members who were fighting cancer or lost someone close to them.
Since then, the MLAC Executive have made it mandatory for each team to allocate one regular season game to Hockey Fights Cancer and we encourage the players, coaches and parents to participate in raising funds. 100% of the funds raised at the games are donated back to the Alberta Cancer Foundation.
Last year our 9 teams raised $59,805 after not having our Pink Games for 2 years due to Covid. We also present 1 of our 9 teams our Pink Game trophy, it goes to the team that raises the most for the Alberta Cancer Foundation.
Thanks to everyone who will help us again this year.
Donations for the event can be made through The Maple Leaf Athletic Club (MLAC) Fundraiser 2023 (onecause.com)
