‘Raise A Little Health’ Ready For Next Week

Huron-Bruce MP Ben Lobb says they’ve got another strong lineup for this year’s Hometown Heroes Raise a Little Health charity hockey game.

It’s scheduled for the Maitland Rec. Centre in Goderich on Thursday, July 19.

Lobb says five years ago when they created the Hometown Heroes game, their goal was to create an event that was exciting and would also allow them to raise money to promote health and wellness in the area.

Proceeds from the game go to the Gateway Centre of Excellence in Rural Health, the Alexandra Marine and General Hospital and Goderich-Huron YMCA Strong Kids Program.

Lobb says in the past four years they’ve raised $180,000 and this year will put them well over $200,000.

As they have from the beginning, Ryan and Cal O’Reilly will be there along with local hero Dave MacIlwain and Brett Mclean from Port Elgin. Lobb says more hockey players will be announced as game day gets closer.
