Pond Hockey Tournament Scores Big for Sarcoma Research



The weather was cold and the lake was frozen...  a common concern amongst many as they geared up for the 11th Annual Taylor Cup Pond Hockey Championship on Sparrow Lake! The Taylor Cup started many years ago in memory of a lady named Judy Taylor who lost her fight to Sarcoma in 2003. Teams hit the ice on Friday, January 29th to play two games under the lights followed by a full day of games on Saturday. This was the first year that all playoff rounds and the final match were played into Saturday evening and in front of a large group of spectators. Hamilton Houdinis, a team that has taken second place for three years straight finally brought home the gold!

Dr. Peter Ferguson, head of the Sarcoma Group at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre was in attendance at the awards evening and dinner to educate participants as to where exactly $1.2 Million dollars raised through The Taylor Cup has and is being used.

Thank you to all of the participants, donors, family and friends who took part in the weekend. This year alone, The Taylor Cup brought in $95,000 for Sarcoma Research at The Princess Margaret. Congratulations!
