The Bishop Feehan Hockey team actively contributed in various ways to support the cause. They engaged in online fundraising efforts, provided assistance during in-person activities at the rink, and collaborated with the Foxboro Sports Center to secure donated ice time for Friday night games dedicated to the cause.
Here are more details about the specific aspects of the cause:
Tournament Webpage: To learn more about the history of the tournament and this year’s details, please visit our tournament webpage. Team captains can register their teams and create personal fundraising pages. They can also start a team and invite members to join. Players have the option to fundraise under the team’s name without registering individually.
We encourage every player participating in the tournament, especially BHS players, to donate a minimum of $24 or any denomination in tribute to Travis, whose number was 24 as part of our 24 Challenge. We also ask everyone to share this link on social media and via email to support fundraising and continue spreading awareness about Travis Roy’s story and the organizations involved, including individuals living with paralysis, Journey Forward, and SCI Boston.
Travis Roy’s Legacy: Emphasize to the team, new players, and families that this tournament aims to continue Travis Roy’s legacy of helping spinal cord injury survivors achieve greater independence. Encourage discussions about Travis and share this link to the E60 documentary on Travis for those who haven’t seen it. Travis’s memoir, “11 Seconds,” provides valuable insight into his life before and after the injury.
Fundraising: We are raising funds for the new Travis Roy Legacy Quality of Life Grant Program at SCI Boston, initiated by TRF, Lee and Brenda Roy, and SCI Boston. This program supports spinal cord injury survivors by providing essential items such as durable medical equipment, vehicle modifications, lifts, computers, ramps, and more. We are also raising money for Journey Forward, the rehabilitation center where Jake Thibeault and AJ Quetta are receiving their rehabilitation. Journey Forward relies on donations to sustain their services.
- Day 1 at Foxboro Sports Center: Newton vs. Bishop Feehan at 5:30 on January 12. BHS vs Lexington High School at 7:45 on January 12.
- Day 2 at Walter Brown Arena: We are thrilled to bring the consolation and championship games on January 13 to BU’s Walter Brown Arena. A special tournament ceremony between these two games will take place at 2:00 on January 13. The consolation game will be at 12:00, and the championship game will follow the ceremony at around 2:45. All players should be present, dressed, and ready for the ceremony. Parents are also encouraged to attend. Our special guest speaker will be Jake Thibeault, who experienced a spinal cord injury in 2021 while playing high school hockey. Travis’s parents, Lee and Brenda, will be in the audience. A live national anthem performance is planned, and we hope for a full house, so please invite your family and friends!
