The first KickAbout has wrapped up and was a great success! 20 teams of all ages and abilities showed up at 8am to register and enjoy a light breakfast. After a presentation by members of St. Joseph's Hospital on this year's goal - the purchase of a rehabilitation aide, the Bure Rise & Go - and a review of the rules of game, the first 4 matches kicked-off simultaneous at 9am.
Thanks to the BMO Centre for a wonder roast lunch, and thanks to our over 30 volunteers for officiating and keeping the matches moving along. A preliminary count looks like we have raised over $14,000 to donate to St. Joseph's Hospital.
Stay tuned for photos from the day and a final tally of our efforts.
