Team #Dominicstrong is inspired by Dominic Rooney, who was diagnosed with leukemia at 11 months old and died Sept. 3, 2015 while on his wish trip to Orlando. His energy and attitude are an inspiration to us all.
We give back through Extra Life to the Alberta Children's Hospital in Calgary, which serves so much more than the Calgary area. Dominic was from Medicine Hat, for example.
There are numerous events happening to support these goals. Most are listed through the #Dominicstrong Facebook page, and include an online auction, local businesses contributing a portion of their proceeds, raffles and much more.
Most importantly, we play games for 25 hours straight starting at 8 a.m. Nov. 4 - full details can be found through an event on the Facebook page.
