Make-A-Wish Update
Submitted By Webmaster on Monday, February 26, 2018
The kids completed our skate-a-thon on Saturday skating 100 Laps out at Western Fair Sports Centre on the Olympic Rink!  We completed 100 Laps in just under 2 hours with our Make-A-Wish Star Alek skating almost ½ with the team.

Kids and parents shared some laughs and tears – even managed to dance to the Macarena. In the end we wound up surpassing our goal of $10,000 – total somewhere just over $13,000.  

We finished the skate-a-thon, Alek and his family had lunch with the team, hung out with us for the day and then came to watch our play-off game.  Alek participated in our pregame and then cheered us on to a 7–0 win over Hamilton – watching us sweep our Round 1 playoff series!

Our Team MONTRA all season has been ONE TEAM ONE GOAL – the players and family certainly came through.
A big shout out to FM96 - Taz & Jim  - Thanks very much for the assist guys, as we had donors join us on Saturday because they heard the Show on Friday.

And I also wanted to give a shout out to Karl Rob (former Jr. Knight Coach) and owner of Snipe Academy  - as they ran a special training session – donating all their proceeds to our cause (Trainers even donated all of their time) as they raised a little over $1,300 (over three hours of training) for us!

TEAM - We made a Dream Wish Come True!

A huge thanks to the parents, families and all of those who supported - Our team's success would not have been possible without YOU.

Coach D
