Hockey Day in Richmond May 7, 2011

I am delighted to lend my support to Richmond Addiction Services, in partnership with Family Services of Greater Vancouver, as they organize "Hockey Day in Richmond" on Saturday May 7, 2011 from noon until 5pm. The event will take place at H.J. Cambie Secondary School as part of Youth Week. Following an afternoon of floor hockey, former NHLer Theo Fleury will give a keynote address "Don't quit Before the Miracle", sharing his personal journey about abuse and recovery from the misuse of substances. Fleury will also join the youth for part of the floor hockey tournament. In addition to being a former NHL All-Star with the Calgary Flames, Fleury is also a #1 best-selling author with his book Playing with Fire, a singer songwriter, Stanley Cup winner, Olympic Gold Medallist at Salt Lake 2002, and World Junior Champion.

Hockey day in Richmond promises to be one of the largest Youth Week events that Richmond has ever seen. It will be a fun-filled afternoon for youth and their families that will focus on prevention of substance use and abuse. If you can help please contact Rick Dubras, Executive Director  rick@richmondaddictions.ca
