On Saturday, October 30th, the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Team Up Foundation supported Camp Trillium as part of the NHL’s Hockey Fights Cancer initiative. This year, we showed our support to pediatric cancers. Camp Trillium provides the full camp experience to families who are battling childhood cancer. This camp is a place where children afflicted with cancer can
enjoy what many take for granted … fun, friendships, and a respite from hospitals and treatment.
The day started with 25 campers getting a chance to watch the morning skate. We then surprised the group, revealing that the campers would have a special visit with some of the Leafs! Colton Orr, Francois Beauchemin, Luke Schenn
and Colby Armstrong
(who still was able to sign pictures for the kids with a cast on!), visited with all the kids, taking photos, signing autographs and putting big smiles on the faces of all those in attendance.
There was overwhelming response of donated tickets by season seat holders which were distributed to the families supported by Camp Trillium. Our special guest for the evening was Hunter, a 3 year old who is currently on active treatment for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Hunter, with help from his older brother Josh, were spokes-kids for the evening, appearing in an interview with CBC Hockey Night in Canada’s Elliotte Friedman, and doing an in-game interview with Monika on the visitors bench.
Special thanks goes out to the Lady Leafs and all of the Camp Trillium volunteers who helped out by selling (and selling out) 50/50 tickets that evening. Their enthusiasm helped us reach our biggest jackpot this season, with $11,000 going to the winner, and $11,000 going to Camp Trillium!
