Easter Seals Ontario has received the support of many individuals throughout its history. One of those supporters is Hockey Hall of Famer, Dale Hawerchuk. Dale was an inspiring leader, teacher and builder all of his life, and his commitment to doing things for others was unparalleled. He believed it was his responsibility, and that of his family, to do whatever he could to give back but never expected any acknowledgement.
Dale and his family have been outstanding supporters of Easter Seals for many years through their involvement in numerous initiatives including: his annual golf tournament in Barrie; the annual Pancake Breakfast and Skate with the Barrie Colts; the Easter Seals 50/50 at the Barrie Colts games; our Showcase of Celebrities Golf Tournament; the Ron Hogarth Roast, and our Celebrity Hockey Classic Series. In addition, Dale made the trip to Camp Woodeden in London to meet the kids and counsellors and see Easter Seals camp in action.
Sadly, Dale lost his battle with cancer and passed away in August 2020.
Hawerchuk Strong is an initiative supporting important causes close to the heart of Dale and the Hawerchuk Family, including Easter Seals Ontario.
