A Hockey Contest To Help Kids. We All Want Them To Be Healthy

The following email was sent to me last night, and posting it here is a privilege. It’s the least I can do. Because we want sick kids to get better.

Hello Dennis,
I found your blog and was wondering if you could help me.
I have volunteered to help a friend to promote a hockey contest for kids who are affected by Colitis or Crohn’s. The contest is being held by a non-profit organization called Canadian Society of Intestinal Research (based in Vancouver). Here is a brief description of the info, but you can find more details at the URL listed below:
HOCKEY CONTEST: Skate with the Edmonton Oiler’s Fernando Pisani (Score for Colitis and Crohn’s national contest) Contest for Canadian kids 10-12 years old, who have been affected by colitis or Crohn’s and who loves hockey. Contest details here: http://tinyurl.com/lrxlkc
Would you be willing to share this information with your members?  Can you also recommend any other other online group where we could announce this contest?
Any help we can get to spread the word about this contest would be greatly appreciated.  My specialty is healthcare, and although I watch hockey games regularly, I certainly don’t have the inside knowledge of how to reach out to this crowd but it’s a worthy cause, so I want to do my best to get the word out.

Many thanks,
Natalie Bourre

  1. Awesome post! I played hockey for 16 years and currently coaching my own son’s squirt team. Oddly enough, I suffer from ulcerative colitis and have for the past 20 years. So, I definitely relate to this contest. I definitely will look further into the link provided above. It’s always good to have fund raisers or contests to battle this disease.

    Thanks again!
