MEDIA ADVISORY - Sittler, Osorio and Magloire among celebrity coaches attending the MLSE Team Up Challenge this Sunday

TORONTO, June 10, 2016 /CNW/ -

WHAT:      

Past and present members of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Toronto Raptors, Toronto FC and Toronto Marlies will team up with sports personalities and amateur athletes for the MLSE Team Up Challenge presented by Ford of Canada. This one-day tournament will host teams competing in soccer, basketball and ball hockey to raise funds for Camp Trillium, a camp for kids living with cancer and their families.




With a minimum fundraising goal of $5,000, every MLSE Team Up Challenge team will have the opportunity to send at least one family from the Greater Toronto Area to camp. The top fundraising teams also have the opportunity to draft a celebrity coach to their roster and win some incentive prizes throughout the fundraising process. Other activities during the day include a silent auction, sport and photo activations and vehicle test drives brought to you by Ford of Canada and Your Toronto Area Ford Dealers. Catered breakfast and lunch will also be provided to all participants.
