In all we raised over $5,000 around the game and the proceeds were deposited last night into our newly-established business account. These funds will be used to continue our promotion organ and tissue donation awareness. In addition to our annual hockey game, we will be supporting our charitable partners -- the folks who are in the business of furthering transplant research and supporting transplant patients as well as donors and donor families.
Two of the other directors of our society are Tina Chaulk and Denice Klavano -- two amazing women who made the ultimate decision to donate their childrens' tissues and organs after tragic accidents.
The other two directors are two of my best friends since childhood Chris Meagher and Blair Landry who in the past year and a half have joined me in becoming transplant recipients. They both have had kidney transplants from live donors -- their wife and brother, respectively.
As far as hockey updates go, I played nets Tuesday night. Felt great and made a lot of nice stops and left the ice with about another half hour of hockey left in the tank. Tonight I am considering sparing as a forward with some of my buddies from work.
