Run and Cycle For #PuckSupport
Support Dave Gilmour and The Puck Support Foundation
On November 14th, 2020 Dave Gilmour turns 70 years old. Dave was once a professional hockey player. He blazed the trail for one of the greatest hockey players of our generation. Doug Gilmour credits his older brother Dave for inspiring and encouraging him to follow his own dreams of playing pro hockey.
Dave went on to become a prison guard back in their home town of Kingston Ontario. While working in the prison system, Dave implemented new sport initiatives for the inmates which completely changed the morale of the jail. All though Dave was doing amazing things to enrich the lives of others he was failing to love his own self. Battling mental health issues such as depression and anxiety Dave become virtually unrecognizable. At the age of 50 Dave weighed over 250 pounds. His mental health and now his physical health were both rapidly deteriorating. Dave was forced to really look at himself inside and out. He decided to make some serious changes. Especially surrounding diet and exercise. Now just about 70 years old, Dave weighs an amazingly healthy 160 pounds. He is an active cyclist and runner.
On his 70th birthday, Dave has decided to travel 70kms. He will run 20 km and cycle the other 50km. Thats right, 70km on his 70th birthday. Dave is doing this to raise awareness and money for The Puck Support Foundation. Dave is a true Puck Support Warrior. "He is an inspiration to me and so many! We are extremely honoured to have Dave doing this for the hockey community. That's who this is for, the entire hockey community!" - Brady Leavold Founder of The Puck Support Foundation
