We were at our last pre-natal class and I hadn’t felt Grace moving much. Through class I paid attention throughout waiting to feel her solid foot make some contact, however class came and went and there was nothing.
This week we’re sharing with you why we started and continue to run Hockey For Grace. Today we share the reason we raise money, Emily’s House.
Today we’re sharing the final reason for Hockey For Grace. Awareness. To start a conversation about Pregnancy & Infant Loss.
Did you know that 1 in 4 pregnancies ends in a loss? We didn’t. It’s a staggering fact and one we didn’t hear through any of my pregnancy until we were 1 of those 4.
AND THE GRAND TOTAL IS… $22,438.00!
It is not too often that we are speechless, especially Chris, but when we hit the total button and this number popped up we were both truly speechless.
Hockey for Grace would not be possible without the generous support of our community sponsors. These companies step up and have made a financial contribution to not only make this tournament and charity social possible but to assist in helping us reach our goal of raising $20,000 for Emily’s House. We are so absolutely grateful for their generosity and support. Please show them some love by giving them a “like” on Facebook (click their logo to head to their page) checking out their website and using the services they provide.
