* PROMO TEAM DEMO * EVENT
The Dirty Bird's Charity Tournament is a two day event with a silent auction and hockey tournament to help raise awareness and funds for the Neurosurgery Kids Fund at the Stollery Children's Hospital. The NKF is committed to improving the lives of children who have had brain or spinal cord surgery and helps to support their families.
The idea came from the love of hockey and more importantly my amazing Nephew Joshua. I knew the only way to make this work was to get my wife involved. When talking about a “charity tournament”, we immediately thought of what hit close to home. We both thought of our nephew Joshua and his family, and what they have gone through. Joshua suffered a stroke at birth, his blood was very sick then at 4 months he acquired a life threatening viral infection. At 14 months old, Joshua had brain surgery at the Stollery. Joshua battled to survive for the first 14 months of his life, and continues to battle but is gaining strength and living his life. I am so proud to know Joshua and seeing him grow and gain strength truly is amazing. He is the reason for all of this, as well all of the kids touched by brain or spinal cord surgery This event means so much to me and my family and everyone involved. I appreciate everyone who has received endless emails, texts and calls to help make this event what it is today.
