24-Hour Hockey Tournament

Hockey Helps Inc. hosts an annual 24 Hours of Hockey Marathon each Labor Day weekend to raise money for local charities.

Since its inception, the Marathon has raised over $4 million for local charities, including Smilezone Foundation USA, which embody the Hockey Helps mission “to help individuals struggling with addiction, mental illness, and cancer, and to provide support for children and youth facing economic disadvantages, illness, or related hardships.” 

PwC is the driving force behind this event, along with the help of former NHL players such as Adam Graves, Stephane Matteau, Arron Asham, Benoit Hogue, Brian Mullen, Colton Orr and others.

"When PwC came up with this idea, I was excited" says Smilezone Co-Founder Adam Graves and two-time Stanley Cup Champion "For Me, just to see how many different groups of people and all the different people that are doing to benefit from people playing hockey, that is for me the great power for the game to grow - what it can do for the hockey community".

More Information on 2024 Tournament Coming Soon!
Thank you Northwell Health and PwC!
