The Angel Project, a Burlington-based not-for-profit founded by Lisette Kingo, hosted its first annual Angel Tournament at The Wave. Co-organizers Lisette and Olympic Gold Medalist Hockey Player and Board Member Becky Kellar invited Burlington Rep teams to play and to “skate for someone who can’t.” The Angel Project brings comfort, support and much more to patients living in the hospital with a variety of complex medical needs, who require 24 hour medical care. Most of these patients have few, if any, visitors. The Angel Project provides basic necessities, such as shampoo, shaving cream or a soft blanket, and also offers the patients a chance for an outing away from the hospital once a year. Other items, such as a wheelchair or a poster for a bedside, are also given as needed. Every dollar raised by the Angel Project goes directly to support these patients and their ongoing needs.
Come out and meet our Angel Ambassadors. Plus we will have some special guests that you won’t want to miss! Reach out to Becky with any Questions Becky@theangelproject.ca or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
