The Rod Harquail Memorial Trust Fund serves OUR area and is for OUR children and their families.

The fund was created in 2007 to offer some comfort during a troubling and uncertain time.  This is all made possible by the generosity of the sponsors, the volunteers, the families, the players, friends and the community.
Once again, the members of the Rod Harquail Fund Committee are requesting your help during our only fundraiser of the year.

On Easter weekend (April 13-16) the Dalhousie Youngtimers will be welcoming players from all over the country, who will participate in the 17th Annual Rod Harquail Memorial Hockey Tournament (The National 3 vs 3 Championship). This fantastic tournament has become an annual event where friends and families re-unite for some sport, entertainment and fund raising.  It’s absolutely wonderful to see how people get together every year and strive towards a common goal of raising money for the Rod Harquail Fund.  Since 2007, over $111,000 has been raised to help families with sick or injured children in our region.

Here is a summary on just how many children that the Rod Harquail Fund has helped since 2007.
