Hockey Heroes Weekend is entering its 8th year in Nova Scotia and has raised over $2.5 million towards life-saving research.
Each team raises $16,000 for the opportunity to play a weekend of hockey with NHL Alumni. The weekend starts on Friday with a draft and the highest fundraising team gets first pick of the NHL Alumni. Saturday and Sunday are filled with tournaments and a Heart & Stroke Heroes Game where the top 10 individual fundraisers play with all the NHL Legends.
This event is a great way to promote physical activity, encourage community fundraising, and brings awareness to the work being done to help create a future without heart disease and stroke.
