Road Hockey Takes on Lindsday!
• Second Annual Lindsay BIA Charity Road Hockey Challenge to raise money for March of Dimes Canada’s programs and services for children and adults with disabilities
On Sunday, May 27th, from 10am – 5pm, part of Kent Street (between Victoria and Cambridge Street) in Lindsay will be transformed into makeshift road hockey rinks in support of the 2nd Annual Lindsay BIA Charity Road Hockey Challenge.
The Grand Restaurant will be the event headquarters.
Team registration is $100 and pucks will be sold at participating stores on Kent Street prior to the event for $2.00 each
This year, two police teams will be facing off at 10:30am with the Ontario Provincial Police taking on the Kawartha Lakes Police Services!
Based on an event founded in Toronto by March of Dimes’ Special Events Manager, Linda Yielding, teams fundraise to compete in a friendly road hockey tournament. Each team is guaranteed a minimum of three games. The teams will be comprised of local businesses and corporations.
"The Lindsay BIA and community members have been great to work with. We couldn’t have picked a better community to hold this event in!" says Regional Fundraising Coordinator, Sandra Burnowicz.
“The Charity Road Hockey Challenge is based on an event that has been successfully run out of Toronto for 14 years and we are very excited to bring it back to Lindsay, where we have a large number of programs, supporters and friends,” says Mary Lynne Stewart, Director of Fund Development and Communications for March of Dimes Canada.
“We’re very excited to build on the success of last year’s event,” she continues.
For more information, interested participants can visit the Grand Restaurant and ask for Charlie MacDonald, or call Mary Anne Byrne at (705)878-9279 or Sandra Clements at (705)344-0729.
