The Maple Leaf Athletic Club’s first Hockey Fights Cancer pink game was in November 2014 and was hosted by the REM 15AA team. They raised over $14,000 for the Alberta Cancer Foundation and personally presented the cheque and have the honor of having their names on the donors wall at the Cross Cancer. The funds raised were done so by all 19 players who worked hard for the cause as many of them had family members who were fighting cancer or lost someone close to them.
Since then, the MLAC Executive have made it mandatory for each team to allocate one regular season game to Hockey Fights Cancer and we encourage the players, coaches and parents to participate in raising funds. 100% of the funds raised at the games are donated back to the Alberta Cancer Foundation.
Since 2014, MLAC has raised over $68,000. Unfortunately, due to COVID, we were not able to play any of the games as our season was cut short. We are hoping that the 2021/22 pink games with our 9 teams will be back better than ever and that we are able to help raise money for cancer research as well as aiding in the costs for those currently fighting cancer.
