9th Annual Earl Cook Classic

March 25, 2023 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm America/Winnipeg Timezone
Join us for our annual celebration of the life and spirit of our friend and brother-from-care, Earl Cook.
Throughout his battle with cancer, Earl never lost his fighting spirit and his lust for life. Earl was an inspiration to all that met him. He befriended NHL coach Mike Babcock, and was awarded the NHL Alumni Ace Bailey Award for Courage. He was also a regular visitor to the Winnipeg Blue Bomber dressing room. Unfortunately Earl lost his battle with cancer in September 2011 at the age of 23.
At the Earl Cook Classic youth-in/from-care participate in a game of hockey against their social workers, care providers, foster parents, and other adults in their lives. We will have a short free skate time for those who don’t want to participate in the actual game. 
Prizes, snacks, and friends- come on out! Please call and let us know if you want to play on the youth team or adult team, and if you need equipment.
