In 2017 we hosted the inaugural Spirit Bear Tournament in which 8 Cochrane minor hockey teams from Atom to Peewee competed on Mitford Ponds to raise money for Children’s Wish in memory of Lindsay’s late medical school classmate, Dr. Greg Roberts. Greg was an amazing father and friend, a compassionate physician and children’s book author. The team that raises the most money wins the “Spirit Bear Award”, named after Greg’s book S is for Spirit Bear: A British Columbia Alphabet.
This year the Spirit Bear Tournament will be held on Sunday, February 2 in support of the Children’s Cottage Society. For more information about the Spirit Bear Tournament, please contact Elisha Jackson at 403-283-4200 ext 221 or [email protected]
