*Skate for Sarah (North York)
9pm-6pm
Canlan Ice Sports- York University
989 Murray Ross Pkwy
North York, ON

The “Skate for Sarah” Ice Hockey Tournament & charitable event began in 2015, in honor of Sarah Watkin. Sarah passed away on November 2nd, 2014, after bravely battling a rare and extremely aggressive form of blood cancer. She was seven years old.

Many people in the community were connected in some way to Sarah, and have followed her incredible story over the past few years. The one day ice hockey tournament will honor Sarah, by raising funds for children dealing with pediatric disability and illness, and for youth scholarships for sports and recreational programs. It will also bring plenty of awareness for Sarah’s Drive for Hope, which encourages the need for blood and bone marrow donors.

The tournament features divisions for youth and adults, and is for all levels of play. There are no restrictions for any players that play in other house leagues or Rep teams.

The event also includes entertainment, family activities, and lots to do outside of hockey.
