In my brief involvement with Cornwall Girls Hockey Association, my eight year old daughter is about to wrap up her 2nd season with the organization, I’m constantly amazed at how it’s so much about the group and not the individual.
The concept of “team” can sometimes be lost in sports but a recent fundraiser at the Benson Centre had the Typhoons coaches face off against the Fastbreakers (women’s team) combined with a CGHA Alumni game and raised more than $6500 for a very special member of the Association.
Madison Primeau continues to battle brain cancer. Her goal is to return as a player and after watching the outpouring of support for her and her family from the CGHA, I have no doubt that goal will be reached.
When Madison stepped onto the ice for the ceremonial drop of the puck to begin the event, there weren’t too many dry eyes on either bench or in the crowd.
It’s always said that hockey is like one big family. After that fundraiser, I’m glad to be a part of such a great family.
The strength and courage Madison and her family have shown in the toughest of times should be an inspiration for all of us.
