It wasn’t much of a competition, but it was all in good fun for a worthwhile cause at the Cobourg Community Centre on Saturday (February 29, 2020).

The Toronto Maple Leafs Alumni took on representatives from the Cobourg and Port Hope Police Associations along with members from Cameco.

The game was a fundraiser for local mental health services. All funds raised from the game will support Northumberland Hills Hospital Community Mental Health Services.

“We are grateful and honoured to be selected as the beneficiary of this event,” said Jennifer Cox, integrated director, mental health, community programs and services, Northumberland Hills Hospital Community Mental Health Services. “Funds raised from this event will elevate our capacity to provide mental health treatment and support services to vulnerable individuals in our community. We admire the willingness to recognize and highlight the importance of mental health; we have the privilege of providing hope to people in our community who are experiencing their worst days. Our Police partners are a highly valued part of our work; we thank everyone involved in organizing the Toronto Maple Leafs Alumni game for our community.”

“At Cameco we recognize that funding for mental health services is essential to helping improve access and support for those who need it,” said Dale Clark, vice president, Cameco Fuel Services Division. “We are proud to partner with the police to bring this fundraiser to Cobourg and to be part of a community-based effort to help make a difference for a cause that touches us all.”
The final score was 17-9.
