WAXERS "ARE" COMMUNITY
||AThe Waxers are proud of the
Town of Markham and are willing to get involved in a variety of ways,
for a variety of causes. Past involvement includes participation
in the Terry Fox Run and the All About Kids Festival.
Always there to lend a helping hand, one of
the biggest nights in recent history saw the Waxers hold a fundraiser
for Markham resident Joshua Franey after he suffered a life
threatening brain injury. On a night where Alumnus Steve Thomas
and Markham Olympians Ken Pereira and bronze medalists Karen Cockburn
and Mathieu Turgeon pitched to help, the Waxers won
a thrilling overtime game against Oshawa. Joshua continues
to come to the Waxers games every Friday night.
||At every Waxer game, the handicapped citizens
of our community are invited as special guests.
Mayor of Markham, Don Cousens, has assured us that access improvements will be made to the
arena to accomodate the needs of the people.
||The Waxers enjoy a chance to
give back to the community and that is why each season the Waxers hold
a "Teddy Bear
Toss" during December. The highly popular event sees
fans throw their stuffed animals on to the ice after the Waxers score
their first goal on that night. The toys are then collected and
donated to a local charity for distribution for Christmas.
||For over 60 years Junior Hockey has sent young
athletes on. They have become ambassadors for our town.
Waxers are synonymous with the Town of Markham. Markham's reputation has benefited greatly
from these young athletes and their families.
Since the 1930s Junior Hockey in Markham has produced well over
1,000 young hockey players and men who have espoused the values of the town and its hockey
