For the 10th and final year, the Gardens Ice House in Laurel is hosting the Leap Towards a Cure hockey tournament from August 3-7, raising money for cancer research, treatment, and education at the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, MD.
The tournament is operated by the Andrea Henderson Memorial Fund, a volunteer-only 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization. Every penny of the proceeds from the tournament will support cancer research at the Kimmel Center. Since the tourney’s beginnings, Leap Towards A Cure has raised over $165,000 and counting for the Kimmel Center. This year, the tournament is hoping to hit a goal of over $200,000 in total donations over the course of ten years.
