Our Minor Midget Preds played in the 5th Annual Start Talking Cup on Tuesday January 15th at the Holly arena in Barrie! This initiative was started to raise funds to support youth mental health in Simcoe County.
It was an exciting game with the only goal scored by the Preds in the third period - and an exciting finish when Barrie pulled their goalie with one of the Preds in the box! Our boys fought off the 6 on 4 for over two minutes to bring home the cup. Preds over Barrie 1-0 final!
We would like to share with you a message from Liz Grummett & Lynn Raimondi from the Canadian Mental Health Association of Simcoe County.
Just wanted to take a moment to thank you and your incredible support towards our 5th Annual Start Talking Cup. It was truly inspiring to witness the strong sense of community at last night’s event. There are so many passionate people who join together to make the Start Talking Cup an unforgettable experience.
The money is important, but perhaps the part that hits us in the heart the most are the conversations we hear from our young people sharing their thoughts about mental health. Every day we hear more people standing up and fighting the stigma against mental illness and addiction. This is why we have events like the Start Talking Cup to continue to change the people’s perceptions. This is why we need every single one of you.
We are pleased to announce that we raised almost $15,000 towards the Start Talking Campaign! We will posting more photos today on social media, here are some early shots from the amazing Terry Wilson. Feel free to share!
Thank you again.
