Five Hole for Food: Will you play hockey for food?
Thinking back to the summer of 2010, it seems like so much has happened since Five Hole for Food’s (FHFF) inaugural tour where Vic and I grabbed some hockey sticks, headed to Montreal to start a nine-city, eleven-day journey, which saw us raised 6,000 pounds of food for food banks across Canada.
Last summer we visited the very East Coast for the first time and Canadians from St. John’s to Vancouver came together to help us raise nearly 45,000 pounds. Now faced with another trip ahead of us, things are more exciting than ever as we gear up for a third tour across Canada. 11,000 kilometers, 19 days, 13 cities, 5 people, 1 epic trip to fight hunger across the country.
With a year’s worth of incredibly hard work put into this iteration of the tour, we had to step up our game. We had to take things to the next level and so we didn’t just want to raise more food than last year. We wanted to obliterate that total. As we kick things off in St. John’s, Newfoundland, it’s time to highlight how giving Canadians are and use the game we love to bring a nation together to make a difference. July 3rd to July 21st will mark the third annual FHFF tour and our quest to raise over 100,000 pounds of food for food banks across Canada and we can’t wait to have you join us!
You can join us in St. John’s, Halifax, Charlottetown, Saint John, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg, Regina, Calgary, Edmonton, Victoria or Vancouver. And if you can’t make it out, you can donate online.
