This year the Hamilton Women's hockey team has decided to raise money and awareness for the Austin’s Playroom, an initiative of the Mario Lemieux Foundation. The team has been inspired by the vision and dedication of Mario and Natalie Lemieux in having already created 36 calm and comfortable playrooms in hospitals throughout the country. The team is proud to help with the creation of the next playroom - to ease the suffering of a family facing a difficult medical situation.
Everyone is invited to the game on February 2, 2019 at 3pm versus Bowdoin College. We would appreciate any amount in helping us reach our goals. On behalf of the coaching staff and team, thank you for your support!
All proceeds will be collected directly by the Mario Lemieux Foundation.
The Mario Lemieux Foundation is dedicated to raising funds for cancer research and patient care, as well as Austin’s Playrooms, an initiative that creates playrooms for children and families in medical facilities. The Mario Lemieux Foundation was created in 1993 by hockey legend Mario Lemieux. In that year, Mario was enjoying the greatest season of his brilliant career and on pace to establish a new NHL scoring record. Then he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease. After a successful battle with Hodgkin's, Mario is now 25 years cancer free and his experience led him to focus on ways to assist those not so fortunate. He devotes much of his time to the Foundation raising funds to help reach the ultimate goal: a cure for cancer.
