Nicole Rodgers is a hockey mom as her son plays on the 2006 Huron-Perth Lakers hockey team.
During the holidays, the team entered the Good Deeds Cup competition, which awarded to the hockey team that performs the most impressive good deed in their community.
Rodgers said they decided to get involved with Childcan, which supports families who are dealing with childhood cancer, comes from a personal brush with the disease.
Rodgers discovered Childcan had ran out of funding during the holidays, and there were three families they wouldn’t be able to support, so the Lakers stepped up and provided one of the families a Christmas, raising over $1000 for toys and things on the family’s wishlist by doing things like shovelling snow, raking leaves, and babysitting.
The Good Deeds Cup winning team has a nationally broadcasted profile on them, a ceremony, and a monetrary donation to their charity of choice on behalf of Chevrolet, the corporate sponsor for the competition.
