ICORD Ultimate Frisbee Tournament for spinal cord research

The ICORD Ultimate Frisbee tournament will be held on Sept. 30 in the fields around W. L. McLeod Elementary School. It is an autumn event that brings out students in grades 4, 5 and 6, from the elementary schools throughout our area, to gather to play Ultimate Frisbee in the name of spinal cord research.

There will be a concession, donated by the Vanderhoof Co-op, and a popcorn machine, donated by Kal Tire, set up in the gym at McLeod school. All money raised from the students and the concessions are donated to ICORD.

This year will mark 18 tournaments that have been played. We have contributed approximately $20,000, through the years, to ICORD. ICORD is a research facility at UBC that focuses on making life easier for people with spinal cord injuries and hope to one day announce a cure!
