2nd Annual ball hockey tourneyOctober 21, 2009
On Saturday, September 26, young adult cancer supporter and this organization’s buddy, Lisa Belanger, along with her friend Desi Fuhr, put off the 2nd Annual Young Adult Cancer Survivors (YACS) Ball Hockey Tournament in support of young adults with cancer.
The event was held at a community rink outside Edmonton, AB and was super fun with six teams and some tasty BBQ. With ast year’s tourney under their belts, YACS learned a lot from the experience and ramped up the excitement and doubled the participation for round two. An AWESOME $900+ was raised at the event and they expect next year to be even bigger and better!
All proceeds were donated to Young Adult Cancer Canada’s (YACC) Retreat Yourself West initiative which was held this year for the first time outside Vancouver, BC from September 3-September 7, 2009. This was the first year YACC was able to provide two Retreats, East and West, and Lisa’s participation was one of the reasons we did this!
On behalf of all of us here at Young Adult Cancer Canada, I’d like to send a shout out to Lisa and her awesome group for supporting young adults with this tourney. You’ve got such initiative and we really appreciate all your hard work.
