A memorial hockey game held for Terry Trafford, a promising young hockey player who took his own life, raised more than $5000 for the Kids Help Phone.
Terry Trafford was from Weston, and he attended Weston Memorial. More than a hundred people gathered on Mother’s Day for hockey game and gathering held in the schoolyard to remember the young man and raise money.
The organizer said:
We wanted to celebrate the life of our friend and neighbour through the game that he loved, letting hockey and fundraising act as a means for uniting the community of Weston and shaking off our grief.
Through our efforts and the funds that we raised, we hope to be able to make a difference in someone’s life through Kids Help Phone; where someone in the depths of their despair can have somewhere to turn and a light to look forward to. No matter how bleak everything may seem, there is always hope.
