We hope you will consider joining us at the Second Annual Street Hockey To Shut Out T1D Street Hockey Tournament, to be held on Monday, May 29 from 9-4 at the Mutch Street Hockey Rink in Canton. Our son Will organized this charity street hockey tournament to raise money for research and to help cure Type 1 Diabetes. The first event – held a year ago – was a lot of fun, and raised money for both the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and the Joslin Diabetes Center. We are hoping to build off last year’s success, and hope you can join. Please see the attached flyer for details, and the instructions to sign up are below.
We hope to have two divisions – 8-10 year olds, and 11-13 year olds. Will and Brendan plan to put together their own teams, and we hope you’ll consider getting a team together too. Bring friends, siblings, neighbors, teammates – hockey players and non-hockey players are all welcome. There will be a slushy truck, drinks and snacks available.
To raise money for research and to help cure Type 1 Diabetes - Proceeds go to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) and the Joslin Diabetes Center.
Will's Story In 2010, now 13-year old Will Matthews was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. He fights this disease every minute of every day. As a lover of sports, he has remained active and hockey is his passion. His parents’ passion is finding a cure for Type 1. So when Will came up with the idea to create a street hockey tournament to raise money for Type 1 research and care, it made perfect sense to all.
