The orange ball flew once again at Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto as Scotiabank Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer faced off for its sixth hugely successful year.
This year's event, which took place last Saturday, featured 1786 players and their donors raised $2.5 million - breaking the world records set in 2015, for number of players and funds raised in a road hockey tournament.
The event provides critical funding for cancer research at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, one of the top five cancer research centres in the world. Through the event's six-year Toronto history, the event has raised in excess of $14 million for The Princess Margaret.
The dawn-to-dusk event featured 150 teams of eight to 12 players each playing five games through the course of the day.
Top fundraising teams had the opportunity to draft a celebrity onto their team to either play or coach. Among the 50 personalities available to be selected at a live draft the evening prior to the event were CBC broadcaster Peter Mansbridge, Olympic gold medalist Penny Oleksiak, the Hanson Brothers of hockey film infamy, model Monika Schnarre and Hockey Hall of Fame member Glenn Anderson.
"Scotiabank Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer is one of the highlights of the calendar year for me," says Paul Alofs, President & CEO of The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation (and team captain of the Passion Capitalists). "We are so appreciative of the efforts of our sponsors, board of governors, crew and volunteers, but are especially thankful for our participants and their donors who make this such a special and important event for funding programs like immunotherapy at The Princess Margaret."
