Welcome to the Fundraising page of
Tournament for Emily
The Tournament for Emily is a basketball tournament run by the senior girls basketball team at Riverside Secondary in Port Coquitlam. It is named after Emily Inglis who died of neuroblastoma before she was old enough to attend Riverside.
The Tournament for Emily started in 2004 and has included girls’ basketball teams from around BC and Alberta. Each team makes a contribution that goes to kids being treated for cancer at BC Children's Hospital. The tournament has raised more than $83,000 since 2004.
Riverside coaches Paul and Caitlin Langford write: "It has always been a little bit uncomfortable to be fundraising so healthy kids can get new uniforms or go to nice places to play in the sun. We are fortunate to have a gym and an event that raises awareness and money for kids with cancer by creating an environment in which young athletes can give back."
Thanks to the players and parents who make the Tournament for Emily a success and to the doctors and nurses and other staff at BC Children's Hospital who take care of our kids.
