"Car!! Move the Net!!"

Growing up in Canada, we remember hearing that phrase yelled by youngsters gathered in the street to play ball hockey. We have now grown up and now have the event that is safer than the streets and a lot more fun, and much bigger too!

The Gretzky Family & Lung Health 

After the death of Phyllis Gretzky, the matriarch of the Gretzky clan, Wally and his family have enthusiastically partnered with the Ontario Lung Association to raise funds for research. We started the Phyllis Gretzky Memorial Golf Classic 11 years ago to honour Phyllis and everyone who suffers from lung disease. Since then, Wally has become our Christmas Seal Ambassador, as well as representing our mission at Queen’s Park for lung health advocacy initiatives.

 What Every Ontarian Should Know... 

Today more than 2.4 million people in Ontario – one in five – are currently living with a serious lung disease such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or lung cancer.

 

The family’s goal is to ensure that funds are raised for research, so other families do not have to endure the pain of losing a loved one to lung disease. Not only have we raised $101,077.00 at the street hockey tournament, but we have also raised $197,045.00 at The Phyllis!  This equates to $298,122.00 and means 6 research grants!

Today more than 2.4 million people in Ontario-one in five- live with lung disease we are trying our best to bring new treatments and programs and possibly a cure one day, in order to help our loved ones breath a little easier each day!
