CCF January News Bulletin

January News Bulletin

 The World’s Longest Hockey Game Jrs. will take place from January 25-28, 2024.


Seventy-eight kids aged 12-16 will be hitting the ice at Saiker’s Acres in Sherwood Park, where they will play hockey for a lengthy 72 hours.

 These caring and courageous young players aim to raise an ambitious $500,000, which will be used to support childhood cancer clinical trials through the University of Alberta.

Corbin Blatz plays to honour his grandpa Gerry, who sadly passed away from cancer in 2020 at the age of 65.


When Corbin was told he would be raising funds for kids with cancer and not adults like his grandpa, Corbin responded swiftly, saying, “Cancer is cancer, isn’t it? It doesn’t matter how old you are, it still sucks!” 

 Donations Support Two Main Areas:


1. Pediatric Brain Tumour Research


2. The Expansion of Pediatric Clinical Trials Right Here in Edmonton to Include Specific Quality of Life Trials
