Firefighter’s Fire & Ice Hockey Marathon a Great Success


The Sault Ste. Marie Professional Fire Fighters Association Local 529 is happy to announce that their 9th annual 24 hour hockey marathon again was a huge success.

Teams from all leagues and age groups participated in the event to assist in raising money for the Local Charity fund run by the Sault Ste. Marie Professional Fire Fighters Association.

Soo Snipers, our city’s new sledge hockey team, stepped forward and played the final 2 hours of the hockey marathon bringing a whole new dimension to on ice fun!

Local Firefighter Sandy Bunting was praised by his teammates and co-workers for being this year’s sole participant to play in all 24 hours of play including this years first ever two hour game of sledge hockey.

The SSMPFFA would also like to thank those who helped with sponsoring ice times as well as supplying food and beverages to the hungry hockey players:
