Le Classique 2015 was again a big success raising nearly our goal of $50,000 for the Canadian CMV Foundation. Thank you to all participants and a very special thank you to all our sponsors. Tune in for next year’s bigger and better event!
Le Classique is the brainchild of Marc Foidart and Rob Tetrault, who conceived of the idea over a few drinks at the Garage Cafe. The objective was to figure out an effective way to raise money and awareness for Congenital CMV Research.
The men imagined gathering a group individuals and playing Canada’s favorite pastime in one of the most historic areas of Western Canada, Historic St. Boniface.
Ball hockey has been played at some level on streets everywhere in Canada for generations. Both Marc and Rob have been profoundly impacted by ball hockey in their lives. Francophones raised in rural Manitoba, Marc and Rob were surrounded by the game from an early age, having both screamed “Car” on many occasions in their youth growing up in St. Norbert and Marchand respectively.
When the men were trying to find an ideal location, they quickly realized that they were literally standing on a goldmine. The Garage’s vast parking lot would provide an ideal location to host a ball hockey tournament. It would provide immediate and convenient access to drinks, food and facilities, along with enough space for two rinks.
The tournament was born.
