RED DEER - The Hockey Alberta Foundation is proud to recognize the Glencross Invitational Charity Roughtstock Event as its TEAMMATE of the Month for September.
Spearheaded by former NHL player Curtis Glencross, the sixth annual event ran on August 25, raising money for the Every Kid Every Community program, as well as Ronald McDonald House Central Alberta. The portion of the proceeds donated to the Hockey Alberta Foundation is done so through the Glencross Legacy Fund.
“The Glencross Charity Roughstock Event stands strongly behind the Hockey Alberta Foundation, and the Every Kid Every Community program, which is all about eliminating barriers and getting kids into the game of hockey,” said Curtis Glencross. “Sports are a stepping stone in teaching kids the values of hard work, commitment and teamwork in order to achieve success in life. Hopefully through our support we can have an impact on the kids we help in the right direction, as sports are not only about physical activity and having fun, but also life lessons in cooperation, sportsmanship, and dealing with adversity”
The Hockey Alberta Foundation would like to thank the Glencross Invitational Charity Roughstock Event for their support of the Every Kid Every Community program, and for being a great TEAMMATE!
