Participants were back at Woodbine Racetrack to face off in the seventh annual Scotiabank Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer fundraiser. This year, participants and donors raised $2.6 million, breaking the world record set last year for funds raised in a road hockey tournament.

As one of the top 10 single day athletic fundraisers in Canada, funds raised for Princess Margaret Cancer Centre contribute to areas such as immunotherapy, cancer stem cell, and genomics research, amongst many others. Through its seven-year history in Toronto, the event has raised more than $16 million for the Princess Margaret.

This year's event featured 150 teams of eight to 12 players each playing five games through the course of the day. This includes Road Hockey's first all-female division. Participants were entertained with musical acts, celebrity appearances, interactive activities, kid's games, food and beverages and interactive games.

"The overwhelming success of our seventh annual Scotiabank Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer is a direct result of this passionate and selfless community of road hockey players, sponsors, donors and volunteers who support our mission to conquer cancer in our lifetime," said Paul Alofs, President and CEO of The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.
