About Docs on Ice

Over the past 32 years, Docs (Doctors of Ontario Charity) on Ice has raised more than $1 million for charity. Founded in memory of Dr. Peter Howes, who himself was an avid hockey player, the tournament has steadily grown in size since its inception and has been hosted all over Ontario.

Supported causes have ranged from the Ontario Lung Association to funding for a youth brain concussion program. Last year, Docs on Ice raised an unprecedented $330,000 in cash and goods-in-kind for the Canadian Mental Health Association serving York Region and South Simcoe.

Together, we can bring a lifetime of hope to every Canadian on the brain tumour journey.
