The IWK Children’s hospital out of Halifax benefits all of us and is the only true children’s hospital in the Maritimes. 

This year there is a committee in Fredericton that is organizing a playoff hockey pool fundraiser in support of the IWK Hospital Foundation.  Halifax has been running a similar event for the past 16 years and it has been very successful.  The Fredericton event will be held on April 17th in the Community Rooms at Willie O'Ree Place. They are hoping to raise a modest $5,000 in the first year and build from there.

I’m sure most people in the Maritimes know a child who had a stay at the IWK. For me it’s close to home as my nephew was diagnosed with Leukemia over a year ago and he’s spent plenty of time there. But because of them he has a great chance of beating it.  So find a buddy and come support a great cause. Spots are limited so register soon.
