On August 6, 2011 we lost our son, Andreas James Koussoulis, to brain cancer. Andreas loved hockey and especially being a goalie. He had the mental toughness, courage and confidence to be one. What we also loved about Andreas was his boundless energy and compassion. He thought it was unjust that kids who wanted to play the best game in the world couldn’t. Therefore, we decided to establish a fund in memory of Andreas. His favourite hockey player was Sidney Crosby. He loved reading his following quote. “I’ve always had a passion for hockey…That’s the key. You can’t be putting in time. You have to enjoy doing what you do.”
The Victoria Village Hockey League was a great place for him to play the game he was passionate about, have fun, and learn about teamwork and character. Our family acknowledges with great appreciation the Leagues’ support during his courageous battle with cancer, and we are committed to working together to assist kids in playing hockey.
Please help us, and so many others, who have already generously contributed, to make it easier for kids to take up the sport that Andreas loved. A heartfelt thank you to all who have, and will, donate to the Andreas Koussoulis Memorial Hockey Fund.
Your donation to the Andreas Koussoulis Memorial Trust Fund will assist each year in paying the Victoria Village Hockey League registration fees for some children who would otherwise not be able to afford to play our great game of hockey.
