Mooseheads Announce Funding to Keep Kids in the Game
Halifax, N.S. - The 2019 Memorial Cup in Halifax continues to give back with an announcement today that will help keep hundreds of minor hockey players in the game for the 2020-2021 season.
The 2019 Memorial Cup Host Society, in partnership with the Halifax Mooseheads, is committing a total of $150,000 to the 38 Hockey Associations across Nova Scotia to help pay registration fees for young athletes this season. This donation will help keep 500 kids in the game by providing a one-time $300 bursary for those in need.
"The COVID pandemic has created financial challenges for many families across the province" said Halifax Mooseheads President, Brian Urquhart.
"We are thrilled to be able to use these funds at a time of need to help keep more kids playing the game they love."
"First off, we want to extend our sincere thanks to the Halifax Mooseheads for this incredible contribution," said Amy Walsh, Hockey Nova Scotia executive director.
"We know that the last few months have been difficult for everyone and we believe that these funds will go a long way in ensuring that hundreds of kids from across Nova Scotia can get on the ice and experience our game this season."
Hockey Nova Scotia will be working with hockey associations across the province to roll out the details of the application process.
