Brian's Hockey Marathon of Hope 2017 Fundraising Page
On September 9th along with 63 other hockey players I will be competing in 2017 HOCKEY MARATHON of HOPE.
The Hockey Marathon of Hope is all about making a difference while playing the game we love! All of the funds go to support two charities: Doing Family Right and Imani Orphan Care. Each of these charities work to bring HOPE to families locally, and HOPE to children all over the world!
Date: Saturday, September 9, 2017
Where: Center Ice Abbotsford
Why: All the funds raised go to Doing Family Right & Imani Orphan Care
I am asking you to sponsor me as I play 8 games of hockey in 10 hours. But the Hockey Marathon of Hope is not just about hockey. It is primarily a fundraiser for two Christian organizations: Imani Orphan Care Foundation and Doing Family Right
Imani Orphan Care Foundation (IOCF) is about bringing hope to orphaned children....

<i>• IOCF has an orphanage in Kenya with children who were abandoned by their families, orphaned, or rescued from unhealthy situations to provide food, education, healthcare, and spiritual instruction.
• IOCF goals are to give these children a sense of love and belonging and to teach them the tools, skills, and knowledge needed so they can create a better future.
• IOCF is a non-profit organization with a great compassion to support children and families in need in Kenya.</i>
This YouTube video is a great summary of what IOCF does and the impact they have on orphaned children in Kenya.

The Hockey Marathon of Hope also supports Doing Family Right:

<i>“Doing Family Right was Founded by Dr. Dave Currie in 2010 to help people maximize their most important relationships: marriage, family and with God. It is driven by the desire to provide practical, tested, and biblical advice and coaching for couples who want to do family right. Doing Family Right wants to make a difference in local homes and across all nations.</i>
Since I have submitted a personal donation myself to cover the costs of the day, every dollar of your sponsorship will be used in direct ministry by these two great charitable organizations. No amount is too big or too small as every donation helps. This event has raised over 500K in the last 10 years. Any donation of $20 or more will be issued a tax deductible receipt.
You can sponsor me online easily by clicking in the Donate Here button on the right side of this page. Thank you so much for considering this great opportunity to make a positive impact for this amazing cause!
