The Quarry Edmonton golf course will play home to the fourth annual Logan Hunter Memorial Golf Tournament this Thursday, July 11. 

The Logan Hunter memorial tournament honours its namesake Logan Hunter, a former hockey player who lost his life tragically over six years ago in the 2018 Humboldt Broncos bus crash. The tournament will consist of over 200 golfers who will play in teams of four. With the cost of entering the tournament only 200 dollars a person it will include three meals and a silent auction. With all proceeds going to the Logan Hunter Memorial Fund. It also includes a 50/50 sale with proceeds going to Zoe's Animal Rescue.  

The Logan Hunter Memorial Fund donates to countless charitable organizations contributing to the Elite Athlete grant, Spirit North, and supporting many animal rescue societies.

Donating is a big part in keeping Logan's spirit alive, says his mother, Shauna Nordstrom. 

"Were inspired by things Logan would love to donate in," said Nordstrom." Every year we work with Jack Redlick of the St. Albert Raiders to sponsor one hockey player. The kids send in a letter about themselves and why they deserve the award. I pick one player and we cover their hockey fees for that year. The player also gets to wear a 'bumbar' on their jersey to show they were sponsored."

With all the business of the tournament this time of year, it's important to take time to appreciate everything around them, explains Nordstrom. 

"It's the good stuff. There are lots of dark days and it's the worst pain anyone could ever go through and it is hard every day," she said. 

"But this is the good stuff. Logan would want us to laugh and smile more then cry. So that's what we're going to do, it's the perfect day and perfect event."

Nordstrom is thankful for all the tournament's volunteers.

"I also really want to thank Amy Kobzey," she said. She actually got to meet Logan through his physiotherapy appointments. Then after the accident she became instrumental in everything we do to honour Logan. She's one of my girls. She has a special place in our hearts, she leads us through the journey."
