International Ice Hockey Federation World Female Hockey Day
WHAT IS THE WORLD FEMALE HOCKEY DAY?
It’s time to celebrate the future of female hockey around the world!
On October 13th, 2012, the IIHF (International Ice Hockey Federation) in conjunction with the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association (OWHA) is hosting the second annual World Female Hockey Day. Female hockey is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. It is an opportunity for girls of every age to try and experience ice hockey at all levels. The day will also be a fundraiser for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation to help build awareness and support towards a cure for breast cancer.
The Purpose: The IIHF World Female Hockey Day Marathon and Fundraiser objectives are twofold: build awareness for female hockey in our community and around the world; and build awareness and a cure for breast cancer — what a WIN- WIN for two great causes!
