5th Annual Rangers vs. Cambridge Ice Hounds and Kitchener Ice Pirates Benefit Game

Jan 12, 2012 - 15:24 GMT

Monday, January 16th from 6:00pm – 8:30pm come out and join us for the 5th Annual Rangers vs. Cambridge Ice Hounds and Kitchener Ice Pirates benefit game, taking place at the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium Complex.

Help support Waterloo Region Special Needs Hockey teams as you cheer them on at this fun exhibition game. 

Admission to the game is complimentary with monetary donations welcome at the door. All proceeds will benefit the Cambridge Ice Hounds and the Kitchener Ice Pirates.

The Ice Hounds and Ice Pirates are two local hockey teams comprised of close to 100 children and adults that have developmental or physical challenges that prevent them from participating in traditional hockey programs. The goal of both teams is to provide individuals with an opportunity to experience the great Canadian game in a setting where there are no age groups, no tryouts, and everyone has a role. Players don't need to know how to skate, hold a stick or handle a puck though many of them do this very well. All that is required is a heart and desire to do what many others take for granted; being part of a team, learning about teamwork and most of all having fun playing Canada’s game. The teams travel all over southwestern Ontario to face other teams in many major cities. Friendships are made during these games and the experiences will last a lifetime.

The annual tournament brings together teams from across North America and England once a year for a major gathering. There are no elimination rounds, no one team is crowned champion. In our eyes they are all champions.
