Local bloggers and Calgary Tweeps scored all the way to the food bank during the Five Hole for Food cross-country ball hockey tournament.
Founder Richard Loat donned his beloved Vancouver Canucks jersey and took on a group of Calgary Flames fans in a friendly rivalry game of street hockey at Eau Claire market to raise food for the Calgary Interfaith Food Bank.
Loat and several others have been travelling by car across the country from Montreal since June 29, and heading all the way to Vancouver by July 9 to raise over 2,000 pounds of food.
“It’s a lot of fun and everyone is really supporting the event and I think we’ll definitely be surpassing our goal by the end,” Loat said.
Calgary raised over 640 pounds of food during yesterday’s game.
