Henderson Scores For Cancer!
August 27, 2013

September 28, 1972. A date permanently etched into the minds of Canadian hockey fans, for on that date, Paul Henderson scored the winning goal for Canada to defeat the Soviet Union in the iconic tournament known as the Summit Series! Few will ever forget Foster Hewitt’s historic call: “Henderson scores for Canada!”

And now, Paul Henderson is scoring for cancer, as on September 28, 2013, exactly 41 years after that famous moment in time, he will join Road Hockey To Conquer Cancer to speak at the opening ceremonies. Paul will talk about that moment that changed his life as well as another moment that changed his life – the day he was informed that he had cancer.

Paul Henderson will be one of some 50+ celebrities who will take part in Road Hockey To Conquer Cancer. The dawn-to-dusk fundraising event will host more than 150 teams, as well as Honorary Captains such as Darryl Sittler, Pat Quinn, Marcel Dionne, Curtis Joseph, Elizabeth Manley and Brian Stemmle.
2013 will be Year 3 of Road Hockey To Conquer Cancer, again, taking place at Ontario Place. In the two previous years, the event has raised a staggering $4.7 million for Personalized Cancer Medicine at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. Each team will play 5 games, and in-between, enjoy great food from Boston Pizza and Longo’s, refreshments, live music, massage therapy and interactive games. James Duthie of TSN, who will be participating for a third year, commented, “Unbelievably impressed. I attend a lot of charity events and this is one of the most impressive and well-run I’ve ever participated in.”
