MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - July 9, 2012) - The facts: 13 cities. 19 Days. 11,000 kilometres. 100,000 pounds of food. One epic road trip starting in Newfoundland and ending in British Columbia.
Five Hole for Food founder, Richard Loat and his friends are driving coast-to-coast, stopping in 13 cities along the way, and playing ball hockey to feed hungry Canadians. His goal this year is to collect the equivalent of 100,000 pounds of food across the country for community food banks.
Montreal is the fifth stop of the road trip. The public is invited to bring their hockey stick to play in a drop-in ball hockey game and, if they dare, challenge Richard and his crew in the face-off circle. While there is no charge to play, participants and spectators are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item or cash donation. Volunteers from the local food bank will be on site to collect donations.
Former Montreal Canadiens players Gilbert Delorme and Sergio Momesso will be participating, as is team owner Geoff Molson.
