12th Annual Oliver Hudson Graham Memorial Cancer Sucks Cup
Trenton Minor Sports Community Centre
Thu Dec 23, 2021 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
This Fundraiser was inspired by and created in honour and memory of Oliver Graham, who passed away at the age of 3 from Neuroblastoma after a 21 month battle. His short life of 3 years touched so many people in so many ways, and Oliver's family wants to celebrate that!!!
The Goals of the Fundraiser are as follows:
1) To remember, celebrate & honour Oliver, and all others who have lost their lives due to this terrible disease. The Graham family wants to provide support to those who are currently battling Cancer and are fighting for their life!
2) To pay forward the kindness and support that was shown to the Graham family during and following Oliver’s illness.
3) To raise funds via donation, and through sales of Official Member of Oliver's Express T-shirts. Funds raised will be used to purchase gas/grocery gift cards that will be given to families of sick children on the 6-Link Floor of the IWK and a monetary donation will be made to Ronald McDonald House Atlantic.
and
4) To accept donations of NEW, non-stuffed, wipeable toys that will be brought to the IWK and distributed to the young patients there throughout the coming year. Toys should be suitable for any age ranging from birth to 18 years and need able to be easily cleaned, as the children receiving these toys have severely compromised immune systems.
Please know that by making a donation of any kind or amount, you will be directly impacting the lives of these children and their families who are quite literally living a nightmare!
**The official game schedule will be added to the Facebook event page closer to the day of the event so keep an eye out for that, but volunteers will be at the front of the rink accepting donations and selling t-shirts for the duration of our event. Please note that in order to stay for any of the games, Proof of Vaccination accompanied with photo ID will be required. The Graham family appreciates your understanding and cooperation in advance!
