TMLfans Raising $10,000 for Cancer
« on: February 05, 2015, 02:58:54 PM »
Yes, TMLfans.ca has registered a team in the 5th Annual Road Hockey to Fight Cancer event.  And we're raising AT LEAST $10,000 in the fight to beat cancer.

To each such a goal, we'd LOVE for you to make a donation of any size.  You can donate to the team in general, or any of the players registered for the event.  We've got 12 players including the likes of Rob, Rick, Darryl, Damian, Steve - just to name a few.

Please, if you're wanting to be a small part of this goal - please check out our team page!

Thanks Dan.  Nobody should feel they have to donate, and they can choose to do it anonymously as well.  Cheers!

A quick update, I'm really proud of our team's efforts so far.  We have nearly reached the $2,000 mark already!

This is a cause that hits home for more than a few members on this site.

On a personal level, I'm playing for my cousin who passed away to cancer in the Philippines last year.  And also, for a friend - not that much older than me - who was claimed by the disease in 2012.  And, for a couple of good friends of my mom's, who are no longer among us.

With your help, our team hopes to raise as much money as possible so that we can support The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation as they fight to CONQUER CANCER IN OUR LIFETIME!

Your generosity is appreciated!

If every TML member pitched in a "fin" .... we'd be at the top of the list. What say you members?

For me I am doing this cause it's a fun event and it supports a great cause. Cancer is not very prevalent in my family but like every person these days I have lost friends to this horrible disease. I get to play hockey and it helps people....well then sign me up... and I did.

like every person these days I have lost friends to this horrible disease.

Lost my favorite golf partner for decades in December and I'm down south helping another  very dear friend make his final exit - both from this disease.

I was proud to support RickC in this and I'm proud of all you guys for doing this.

Thank you guys for doing this!

This is definitely a cause that hits close to home for me. It will be 10 years this coming May that I lost my mother to breast cancer. Last year my girlfriend (now wife) was diagnosed with thyroid cancer a couple months before our wedding and all those horrible memories came flooding back. Thankfully I believe the doctors removed all the cancer, but it is one of those things that need to be regularly monitored just in case.

Thanks very much Captain Canuck for your donation!

My condolences on your loss. And, all the best to your wife in her recovery.

Cheers.

Thanks for the interest in helping us and the fight against cancer.  It hit me hard.  My mom and all four of her brothers died of cancer.  My mom fought it three times before it got her.

Princess Margaret is a huge hospital specializing in the fight against cancer.  I'm really proud to be a part of this event!

Like Damian said - if everyone gave a few $, we'd raise a great total to fight cancer.

And if anyone is wondering - you can make a donation online or by mail.  You can do it anonymously or not, and anything over $15 gets a tax receipt.
