WE ALL DID IT!!! The Ontario Ball Hockey Association was one of many groups that assisted in raising awareness for the ROAD HOCKEY TO CONQUER CANCER event held Saturday, October 1 at Ontario Place in Toronto.
The Princess Margaret Foundation embraced Canada’s most cherished cultural pastime in its brand new fundraising mega-event. The road hockey event was the most impactful hockey charity experience EVER and raised 2.4 million dollars!
