The 10th Annual Hockey Marathon of Hope (HMH), an official Paul Henderson event, skates into Abbotsford on Saturday, Sept. 12 at Centre Ice (3600 Townline Rd.).

The event is in support of Doing Family Right (doingfamilyright.com) and Imani Orphan Care (imaniorphancare.com), two local organizations that focus on bringing hope to families and children.

The fundraiser begins at dawn and will feature 10 continuous hours of hockey that will include 64 players and a selection of ex-pros including 13-year NHL veteran Henderson, local product Mike Funk, journeyman NHLer Dean McCammond and goaltender Richard Brodeur, among a handful of other Canadian hockey talents.

In its decade-long existence, the HMH has raised upwards of $500,000 for local charities.
