Hockey Challenge raises $15,000

When the Scrubs rallied against local Rotary clubs in the fifth annual Hockey Challenge, they raised over $15,000.

When the Scrubs from St. Joseph’s General Hospital rallied against local Rotary clubs in the fifth annual Hockey Challenge recently, they raised over $15,000.

The event was in memory of Alexis Irelyn Pendak, who was born Nov. 20, 2008 and died March 12, 2009.

Alexis was born nine weeks premature and weighed only four pounds, two ounces. She was delivered by emergency Caesarean after being flown from St. Joseph’s. Glen Robinson (employee at St. Joseph’s) and his family appreciated the overwhelming support from the hospital staff and from local charity You Are Not Alone (YANA).

Many people at the hospital and from our community provide care, comfort and support to families through these difficult times.

Silvio Alberti, the organizing committee, the players, St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation and YANA are very grateful for the overwhelming support from the community, volunteers and corporate partners that all helped make this event a great success.
