RMHA Joins Hockey Gives Blood
Submitted By AMS on Thursday, December 5, 2019
In partnership with Canadian Blood Services, RMHA will endeavour to promote blood donation as an integral component of hockey programs social and community responsibility. This initiative is known as the Hockey Gives Blood program. 

Toward this goal we have set aside February 27, 2020 as the RMHA donation date. All parents, alum, sponsors and age-specific players are invited to donate in the name of RMHA. WATCH THIS SPACE FOR MORE DETAILS AND INSTRUCTIONS!

Hockey Gives Blood is a non-profit society that has partnered with Canadian Blood Services in an effort to reduce blood shortages nationwide.

The inspiration for this group came from two separate events; the first being the death of Tom Middleton (father of Stu Middleton, cofounder) and the second being the Humboldt Broncos tragedy. Stu’s father was killed on the Trans-Canada Highway while  enroute to one his Junior games in 2000. Stu’s teammates and the local hockey community helped him through that difficult time just as Canadians witnessed the hockey community rallying together to help those affected by the accident in Humboldt. In wake of the 2018 tragedy, Hockey Gives Blood set out to build something that is positive, is long-lasting, and is a tool for the hockey community to make a positive impact at every level. The team is comprised of former players who believe Hockey Gives Blood has the potential to be a leader in sport benevolence. As passionate as they are about hockey, they are just as enthusiastic about this incredible movement!
