South Bruce Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) will be joining seven other communities throughout Ontario in support of 'Push for Change' on February 18th, Hockey Day in Canada, in the Hockey Challenge.

There will be a round-robin hockey tournament at the Davidson Centre Arena in Kincardine from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. between the South Bruce OPP, Kincardine Fire Service & Emergency Services and Kincardine Secondary School teachers and students.

Also participating in the event will be Stanley Cup winner Greg Devries and Boyd Devereux in addition to World Junior Bronze medalist Mark Bell.

The 'Push for Change is a national awareness and youth empowerment campaign focused on ending youth homelessness.

Joe Roberts, a former street youth who became a successful entrepreneur, is pushing a shopping cart 9,000 km across Canada to raise awareness of, and hopefully end, youth homelessness.

The 'Push for Change' is a partnership between the OPP, youth and various organizations hosting a wide variety of events from the Hockey Challenge to the SleepOut Challenge and community suppers.
