ABOUT THE KIMMETT CUP
Lindsay Kimmett was an athlete, a leader, a learner, and an aspiring doctor with all the skills and ambition to leave a big mark on the world (learn more link). Since her tragic passing on February 17th, 2008, we carry on her legacy with the Kimmett Cup.
The Kimmett Cup is a 3-on-3 pond hockey tournament held annually on the third weekend of January at Mitford Pond in Cochrane, Alberta, Canada. The tournament benefits the Lindsay Leigh Kimmett Memorial Foundation – a non-profit organization started by Lindsay’s family after her death (learn more link).
When we began the Kimmett Cup 7 years ago we didn't know anything about organizing a hockey tournament. What we did know was that we wanted the tournament to be a reflection of who Lindsay was as a person.
Today, even though a lot has changed, we still strive to maintain these same principles
Play like Lindsay did.
Bringing community together.
Lindsay lived by the motto "seize the day". Today we live out that legacy through Lindsay’s Foundation (learn more link) and try to make a difference in our community every day.
To date, more than $1,000,000 has been invested into the community in Lindsay’s name, across an array of both local and global initiatives.
