(Victoria Admirals)

Local minor hockey team, the Victoria Admirals, have been selected as BC.’s regional finalist in a national contest that sees $100,000 donated to the team’s charity of choice.

The team has chosen the Children’s Health Foundation of Vancouver Island (the Foundation) as their charity of choice, if they win the ‘Good Deeds Cup’.

The Admirals’ video pitch outlines a plan to purchase specialized equipment for Island kids who need help learning to walk or are at risk of head injuries, and is one of 11 pitches across Canada short-listed to win the grand prize.

The Children’s Health Foundation of Vancouver Island helps kids with physical and mental health challenges, and helped over 1,000 kids access specialized equipment last year.

“To us a good deed is assisting others to achieve their goals,” the Admirals say in their video pitch.

Take a look at their video entry below:

The grand prize winner of $100,000 for the charity of their choice will be announced on March 17th, 2021.
