Support of a local PHA hockey player
The PHA is asking for our organizations support in their drive to bring messages of Hope and inspiration to Jordie Preston.
Of course we all know that things can change in life so very quickly, and when times like this are in front of us it is a powerful thing to be able to rally our communities together to support one another.
If you have any questions, please reach out and we will make sure the appropriate connection is made within the hockey community.
The PHA greatly appreciates your support of the Preston Family.
Some of you may or may not know but 3 weeks ago one of our local hockey players in the PHA and his family that is in the U16 bubble, received news that no one ever wants to receive.
Jordie Preston was diagnosed with Leukemia and was air lifted to Sick Kids to receive critical care where he remains to this day. Monica (Jordie’s Mom who is also a coach for the U16 team 8) has been sending updates and Jordie is getting the care he needs but the road to recovery will be long, difficult and hard at times.
A go fund me page was set up quickly after word go out and it has received tremendous support from the community so far.
A couple of other things are being set up to deliver messages of support and encouragement to Jordi and his family and this is a call to get your support.
A plaque has been set up a the Kinsmen in the lobby where the PHA and its extended community are welcome to write message of support to Jordie. The Plaque will be on display until Monday Dec 30th at which point it will move over to the Evinrude until December 7th.
If you are in these arenas over the next 2 weeks, please take a moment to send then a note of Hope and Support to Jordie.
Jersey patches are being sold by the PHA executive and division conveners for teams of all ages, division and city associations to purchase for their teams. The requested min donation is $5/patch but the purchaser can decide on the final amount and 100% of the revenue raised will go directly to the Preston family to help offset some of their daily costs (trips back and forth to Peterborough, meals, accommodation cost, etc).
