The Champ de Foire Hockey Club was born out of a spirited conversation between two brothers and their friends. While reliving athletic glories of a bygone day, the decision was made to put together a team of family and friends with the intention of trying to win a men’s league championship. For some on the team it was an opportunity to reconnect with their lost love of hockey. For others, a chance at playing for the first time. For all it was an opportunity to discover the positive physical and mental benefits of exercise, playing hockey, connecting with teammates, and being part of something. As the team became more of a reality, we began to recognize our potential reach and that we had an opportunity to do something not just for our benefit, but we could do good for others as well.
Soon after that decision was made, CDF was established and incorporated as a volunteer operated not-for-profit foundation with a team that plays hockey in order to raise money for causes we believe in. The team is a collection of players – some family, all friends – spanning a wide range of ages and experience. We feel a particular connection to causes and organizations working to promote positive mental health and experiences, as well organizations benefitting first responders and those dear to them.
