This season, BOSS was proud to announce a total of $15,000 in donations that we raised for Children’s Wish Foundation and it will go towards granting the wishes of 3 year old Coleen!!
Coleen was born 16 days into labour. When she was born, it took 8 minutes to get her heart beating and 20 minutes to get her first breath, and she was diagnosed with epilepsy and cerebral palsy. In her short life thus far, she has spent majority of it in the hospital and cannot move freely unless she is in water. Her and her family’s wish is to go on a Disney Cruise in NYC where she will also get a chance to meet her extended family for the first time!
A huge shout out to Mike Paplawski, Trevor Lamb, and an anonymous donor for their massive individual contributions. Thank you to Molson Coors Canada for their awesome donation matching program that allowed us meet Coleen’s needs.
Thank you to our sponsors in kind – Extreme Air Park, Flying Squirrel Trampoline Park, and Papa John’s Pizza for your awesome gifts! And finally, to all the players that participated and donated, you are all heroes in a little girl’s fairy tale!
This is why we do what we do. We love playing this sport, we love connecting people, and we love the fact that the combination of the two can result in such profound impact on people around us who are in need. Thank you all for being part of this amazing experience!!
