The Jordan Boyd Celebrity Hockey Challenge is a one-day tournament at the BMO Centre in Bedford, in which 8 teams compete for the coveted Boyd Cup. Teams play alongside professional hockey players that are drafted to each team by order of their fundraising efforts. The highlight of the event is a Celebrity All-Star game in which the professional hockey players are split on to two teams along with the top fundraisers in a game for the fans and that will celebrate the life of Jordan Boyd and his love for the game of hockey. One hundred percent of all net proceeds will be designated to inherited heart disease research for early detection through the QEII Foundation.
As most of you are aware, Jordan was my nephew and this cause is one that is close to me for that reason. Jordan was a young athlete whose journey in life ended too soon due to an undiagnosed heart condition called Arythmogenic Right-Ventricle Cardiomiopathy (ARVC). Not only was Jordan a talented hockey player, he was a kind-hearted individual who believed in giving back to the community. For such a young man, he demonstrated selflessness and compassion on and off the ice. His brother Greg created this event, through the support of his family and many volunteers to celebrate his life, give back to heart research and treatment initiatives, and to give the community and participants a fun-filled day to remember.
I am hoping you will help me achieve my goal in raising $5,000 in memory of Jordan and in support of the QEII and Heart & Stroke Foundation and research into inherited heart disease.
