Hometown Heroes: Raise a Little Health Charity Hockey Game is a full evening of hockey-related festivities and action to celebrate our community’s iconic hockey heritage, culminating in an exciting charity hockey game at the Maitland Rec Centre in Goderich. The game features NHL and other professional level hockey players, as well as local minor hockey players and Members of Parliament.
Huron and Bruce counties have a rich hockey history with many players who have gone on to play at hockey’s highest levels. Local present and former NHL players will be invited to play . In the past we've been honoured to have current hometown NHL’er Ryan O'Reilly (Buffalo Sabres), his brother Cal O'Reilly (Minnesota Wild), Canadian Olympian Justin Peters, and former NHL'er and Stanley Cup winner Boyd Devereaux participate in the game.
Hometown Heroes: Raise a Little Health promises to be a first class event for hockey fans of all ages and walks of life.
This event was created as a community celebration with the ultimate goal of giving back to organizations that make our communities healthy and vibrant. Proceeds from the game are equally distributed to the Alexandra Marine & General Hospital, Goderich-Huron YMCA's Strong Kids and Gateway Centre of Excellence in Rural Health.
Since 2014 Hometown Heroes: Raise a Little Health has raised $180,000 for the three local community groups.
