More than 1,700 participants raised $2.7 million as part of the 8th annual Scotiabank Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer. This brings the eight-year total to over $20 million raised.
This year's event, which was held Saturday at Woodbine Racetrack, featured 145 teams, each playing four games throughout the course of the day.
The top fundraising teams had an extra incentive for their efforts – the opportunity to draft and play with a celebrity. Former NHLers Doug Gilmour, Paul Coffey, Shayne Corson, Bryan Berard, and Tomas Kaberle were just a few of the hockey legends who lent their skills and their sticks to help conquer cancer.
The money raised supports world-leading research at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, one of the top five cancer research centres in the world. Scotiabank Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer is one of the top 10 single-day athletic fundraisers in Canada and funds raised go to critical new areas of research, including immunotherapy, which has already seen significant breakthroughs.
"To make the impossible possible, you need a passionate community of supporters to fuel our vision to conquer cancer on our lifetime," says Michael Burns, President & CEO of The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. "Combine that with Canada's favourite pastime and it is a formula for success.
"Events like this are critical in helping to accelerate cancer research."
