• 14th Annual Wexford 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 – 6pm, the parking lot behind Scarborough pub The Loaded Dog on 1921 Lawrence Avenue will be transformed into makeshift road hockey rinks in support of the 14th Annual Wexford BIA Charity Road Hockey Challenge.
The event was founded in Toronto by March of Dimes’ Special Events Manager, Linda Yielding, and has moved to Scarborough for the first year. Teams fundraise to compete in a friendly road hockey tournament. Each team is guaranteed a minimum of three games. The teams are comprised of local businesses and corporations.
“The Wexford BIA and community members and the staff at the Loaded Dog have been so fantastic to work with. We couldn’t have picked a better community to hold this event in and we’re looking forward to transforming Scarborough into road hockey central!” says Linda Yielding.
“The Charity Road Hockey Challenge is such a Canadian way to fundraise for our vital programs and services for children and adults with disabilities,” 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 previous road hockey challenges and make it an annual event in Scarborough – sun, hockey and friendly competition all for a great cause – what a fantastic way to spend a Sunday,” she continues.
