Walking Across Canada in Support of Daily Bread Food Bank

February 14, 2021

This past holiday season the Greater Toronto Hockey League teamed up with Daily Bread Food Bank, and food banks across the GTA to help fight hunger.

In this era when ‘the length of a hockey stick’ is used as a measure of appropriate social distancing, they invited GTHL families, alumni, and hockey fans across the city, to join their #GTHLFoodGoals campaign.

Together, they raised over $25,000 but the support of the GTHL hasn’t stopped there!

The Toronto Eagles Minor/Peewee team is ‘walking across Canada’ to raise money for Daily Bread Food Bank!

At the beginning of January, the Toronto Eagles teammates, coaches, and family members joined together to start their journey of walking a combined 8414km – that’s the east to west distance across Canada!

Virtually of course, they started in Cape Spear, Newfoundland and are ‘walking’ all the way to Beaver Creek, Yukon on the Alaskan border!

As of January 31, they have covered over 3000km by foot, which has collectively taken them almost 700 hours, and have raised over $2,500!

THANK YOU Toronto Eagles, we are so grateful to have such incredible and dedicated supporters in our fight against hunger.

Go Eagles Go!
