    BACKGROUND:

    Since 1978, The PEI RumRunners, comprised mainly of Islanders and a few
from away, have proudly worn the U.P.E.I. jersey and played hockey against
teams from Calgary. Each season culminates with a social. For the last 4 years
funds have been raised for The Children's Wish Foundation with the total being
divided between the Alberta & PEI chapters. To date, $170K has been raised for
the charity. Their goal is to generate an additional $60 K on June 26th.
    Established in 1984, The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada is a
national non-profit organization dedicated to fulfilling a favourite wish for
children diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses. Since its inception,
Children's Wish has granted more than 15,000 wishes for children and their
families and fulfills approximately 900 wishes annually -- each being an
individual adventure, carefully structured to meet the needs of that
particular child. For information on The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada,
