Capital City Condors on Canada AM

The Capital City Condors wish to send out a great big “THANK-YOU” to all SHI member clubs that supported us in the Aviva Community Fund Challenge! We are thrilled to announce that we were chosen from among 2000 entries to receive funding! On January 25th, the Condors were featured on Canada AM for the cheque presentation! It was very exciting for the players and parents as they had no idea what was happening, other than that the team was being featured on Canada AM and that they needed to be at the rink ready to get on the ice for 6:30am! It was a great surprise moment for the parents and others who had come out to support the team, when the Aviva folks handed our team a cheque for $25 000!! The players had to be on the ice for more than 2.5 hrs (on and off) and we also owe a huge “thank-you” to our amazing coaches and volunteers who kept the kids entertained for such a long period of time. Ottawa Senator, Matt Carkner, who has been very generous towards and supportive of our team even stopped by part-way through the morning to boost the kids energy levels!


The video clip is a compliation of the Canada AM segments featuring the Condors, done by one of our parents. It is well worth watching if you missed it on the 25th.  Again, we could not have reached the final judging stage without the support of our fellow SHI teams, and we are very very grateful!
