Brian's Hockey Marathon of Hope 2017 Fundraising Page
On September 9, I will be competing in the 2017 HOCKEY MARATHON of HOPE along with 63 other hockey players.
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: Imani Orphan Care Foundation and Doing Family Right. These charities work to bring HOPE to children all over the world, and HOPE to families locally.
Date: Saturday, September 9, 2017
Where: Centre Ice Abbotsford
Why: All the funds raised go to Doing Family Right and 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:
• IOCF has an orphanage in Kenya for children who were abandoned by their families, orphaned, or rescued from unhealthy situations. The orphanage provides food, education, healthcare, and spiritual instruction.
• IOCF’s goal is to give these children a sense of love and belonging and to teach them tools, skills and knowledge 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.
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:
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.
Since I have submitted a personal donation myself to cover the costs of the day, every dollar of your sponsorship will be used by these two great charitable organizations. No amount is too small as every donation helps. This event has raised over $500,000 in the last 10 years. A tax receipt will be issued for any donation of $20 or more.
