Better late than never?
We haven't had much to say, since we didn't participate in Extra Life United (no online tournament, during tax season so we couldn't go to Orlando) and haven't done much else in the way of charity work.
That's changing, starting with Superhero Night on Saturday, June 24.
The Mavs sold jerseys the first few years, but last year went to socks which we sold them out of and made a few hundred dollars on for the Alberta Children's Hospital.
This time around, they've got hats featuring the thumbs-up logo. They're reminiscent of the 2018 jerseys with a comic book esthetic - very cool! We can't thank Greg and the entire Mavericks team enough for supporting us and the hospital.
At the time of writing we don't know the price, but if you want one and can't get out to the game, please do get in touch with one of us. We wound up buying dozens of pairs of socks last year and are happy to do the same this time around. We'll be in Calgary AND Ontario in July to deliver to those areas.
This year is the 10th anniversary of Dominic being diagnosed with leukemia. We're still planning to do an online auction (dates TBA), and the 25-hour Extra Life marathon in November. Stay in touch by following the #Dominicstrong Facebook page and of course this blog, where we're continue to post updates.
There continue to be many kids in Medicine Hat and area who rely heavily on the hospital. We know of a recent cancer diagnosis for a local Little League player, and sadly heard news last week about a young man who died after a battle with leukemia.
Hope to see you next Saturday!
