About the Toronto Maple Leafs Alumni
The Toronto Maple Leafs Alumni Association is the largest and most active in the National Hockey League. Our mission is to bring our Alumni to the communities that have made our players feel so special. Each season the TMLA will stage numerous games throughout these communities, giving Leafs Nation an opportunity to see our past players in action, while recapturing some of those memories from years gone by.
About the Peterborough Quacks
The Peterborough Quacks came into existence in the early 1980s, founded by local family doctor, Dr. Peter Clark. From its origins, the team has been composed of physicians who have played hockey all their lives or wished that they had. It has allowed its members to skate away periodically from the pressures of a life in medicine and to enjoy some camaraderie on the ice. The Quacks team began the Docs on Ice hockey tournament in 1983 in Peterborough, an annual charity event that helps raise funds for local causes in the hosting city. The 35th edition of the tournament was held last year in Hamilton and attracted 55 teams and over 750 doctors. The Quacks have also travelled overseas to play and have done so in the great cities of Venice, Bratislava, Paris, Barcelona, Prague, Berlin and Budapest. The Quacks currently have 35 members, divided in 2 rosters, and play weekly in the winter at the Kinsmen Centre. The talent pool on the team has its deep sections, but most of the players are stuck in the shallow end.
GPHSF, Your Family Health Team Foundation, directly supports the work of the Peterborough Family Health Team which provides primary care to 115,000 patients across Peterborough City & County.
We support patients in the community who rely on expert, compassionate care delivered by the Peterborough Family Health Team by raising funds for specialized programs, research, capital equipment, training and continuing medical education for healthcare providers. The Foundation relies on the generosity of donors and community partners to help patients at all stages in life and continues to accomplish the mission that the Sisters of St. Joseph set in motion more than 30 years ago, bridging gaps in community healthcare.
