Like many kids growing up in Canada, I’ve been exposed to hockey throughout my life. Ever since I can remember, I’ve been playing hockey. My parents put me into skating lessons as soon as I was able to stand and ever since then it has been a huge part of my life. Like most people, cancer has also had a very big impact on my life. Unfortunately, just as long as I can remember playing hockey, I have troubling memories of cancer.

It is for these reasons that I was so excited to hear that Triovest has been a proud participant in the Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer tournament for several years. It’s a tournament that brings together thousands of hockey players to raise funds for cancer research and play Canada’s national game for a full day.

It was a great way to participate in a cause that is so close to me and many others, while also enjoying a day of sports and activities. While only an employee of Triovest for a few months at the time, it was a good way to connect with new colleagues that are just as passionate about both hockey and cancer research as I am.

This year (2017), 2 world records were broken that was previously set by the tournament. A total of 1,750 hockey players came together to raise $2.6 million for the cause. The Triovest’s hockey team almost doubled their fundraising goal, raising a total of $19,042.
