The Under-11 AA West Hill Golden Hawks contributed to The Super Sophia Project, giving back in support of children with cancer.
After one of the team’s families coordinated the opportunity, each player filled a Love Box with items complete with a personal note. Love Boxes began during the Christmas season in 2016 for The Super Sophia Project. The boxes are filled by community members with toys, crafts, games, and more. To date, The Super Sophia Project has gifted over 20,000 Love Boxes to children in hospitals across the Greater Toronto area, Durham, and up North.
The Super Sophia Project was founded as a family initiative to give back and inspire hope for children and their families who are battling cancer. Sophia was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia one month shy of her second birthday. Today, Sophia is strong, healthy, and cancer-free. As Sophia celebrates being free of cancer, she hopes to continue to spread her message of being kind, spreading love, and encouraging others to never give up hope.
