The Kinesiology Graduate Student Body will be hosting a charity hockey game at Olympic Arena in Dundas, ON with the aim of raising funds for the Joan Heimbecker Scholarship and Bursary as well as a donation to a women’s shelter within the Hamilton community.

Each year the interest and attendance at the game grows and has become a source of pride and enjoyment for the McMaster Kinesiology community. Many prizes are to be won and lots of pizza must be consumed! Come join us for a friendly reunion and a passionate hockey game on March 15th, 2019.

The Heimbecker Cup is an annual charity hockey game between undergraduates and graduate students/faculty that aims to raise funds in memory of Joan Heimbecker (1968-1994). Joan was a graduate student in the Department of Kinesiology who was killed on campus in an act of domestic violence. To mark her memory, a scholarship and bursary were established in her name and are awarded annually to two Kinesiology graduate students who embody Joan’s zest for life and commitment to community service. In addition, a donation is made to a charitable organization (this year a local Women’s Shelter) that helps support victims of domestic violence.
