Major Bantams play for Children’s Wish Foundation

ANTIGONISH: The Nova Major Bantams are playing their Wear It for Wishes game on February 9 at the Antigonish Arena against the ACA Rangers. The puck drops at 1 p.m.

Last Friday, it was announced that John Michael Kennedy of Port Hawkesbury is the wish child that will be attending the Wear it For Wishes game. Kennedy is 16 years old and living with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

The Children’s Wish Foundation is the organization that the Nova Scotia Major Bantam Hockey League commits to raising money for each year. To date, the NSMBHL has raised enough money for four wishes.

All proceeds from the game and additional fundraising by players and families will be donated to the Children’s Wish Foundation on behalf of the Novas and the NSMBHL.

The Novas hope to surpass the $2,600 donation that they raised last season.
