Kids helping kids: Hockey community rallies in fundraising efforts for Felix

I

Cayman’s Inline Hockey community jumped into the rush Saturday (27 October) in an effort to raise funds for Felix Lubin, a 7-year old boy battling Neuroblastoma.

At it’s 8th Annual Street Hockey Tournament, organizer Kirsty Isbister said their yearly theme of ‘kids helping kids’ demonstrates how the Lubin family remain apart of the sports community as his year long battle with cancer continues.

“We’ve got a family who is a hockey family, and that’s where we thought the funds were needed most. He’s a fellow hockey player, he’s close to our heart. His sister also plays hockey. He’s been fighting a good fight the last ten months, but he still has a way to go.”

Isbister, who organized the street hockey tournament, says the event raised between $8,000 and $9,000. Over the course of 2018, through multiple events, Isbister says they’ve raised over $100,000 for the Lubin family.

“They genuinely never thought there would be this much support. Here we are in the Caribbean, a small population, people have been so generous with their time and their financial contributions, and their love and support.”
