Rogers graciously donated all the hockey sticks they displayed in their stores across the country in honour of the Humboldt Broncos who tragically lost their lives in the horrific bus accident in 2018.
Project North proudly delivered 75 of these sticks to the community of Kangiqsualujjuaq in Nunavik this past September with special thanks to Adventure Canada, First Air and Air Inuit.
Gear Up is our program where you can donate different pieces of hockey equipment to help fill up one whole hockey bag. Each donation counts, so be sure to click through and help us reach our goal!
Project North’s community-based and national funding initiatives will generate opportunities to provide education and fitness programs that benefit the Inuit youth of today and of the future. Project North’s goal is to galvanize Canadians from coast to coast to coast to look North, become more aware, and lend a hand to support children – one of our country’s greatest resources.
