The Northeast Eagles, a Peewee C team from Torbay, N.L., have won been crowned Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup champions for the 2019-20 season.
The Eagles rallied their community and raised $21,500 for the Rainbow Riders Therapeutic Riding Centre, a program that helps children with physical, mental and cognitive disabilities. The team will donate its $100,000 prize to Rainbow Riders.
The Eagles edged out the other two finalists, the South Winnipeg Kings and Regina Rebels, for the honour.
The Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup wants to inspire young Canadians to do good by transforming the positive values learned through hockey into Good Deeds within their communities. Along with our partners at Chevrolet Canada, the goal is to develop hockey players on and off the ice.
Over the past four years, thousands of hockey players across the country have been challenged to go out and perform Good Deeds in their communities. Teams have made an extraordinary impact, but the COVID-19 pandemic means that isn’t possible this season.
For the fifth year of the program, instead of asking teams to submit Good Deeds, Chevrolet is asking for them PITCH GOOD DEED IDEAS that will have a significant impact on their community. Every team that participates has the chance to become this year’s champion and win a $100,000 donation to the registered charity of their choice.
Not only do teams have the chance to become champions, but also to do additional good. Chevrolet will donate $50 to the Hockey Canada Foundation Assist Fund for each Good Deed idea submitted, donating up to $75,000 and helping more kids access Canada’s game.
To ensure the impact is felt far and wide, submissions will be open to U11, U13 and U15 minor hockey teams registered with Hockey Canada.
