SARNIA, ON, –The hugely successful 3 on 3 Street Hockey Challenge will be returning for a second year on April 20, 2013 at Hiawatha Horsepark and Entertainment Centre in Sarnia. The Community Active Living Lambton (CALL) Committee will again be planning the event.

Participants and spectators will also have the opportunity to try a variety of sports demonstrations.
County of Lambton Health Promoter and chair of the CALL Committee, Anita Trusler said, “Community Active Living Lambton seeks opportunities to encourage Lambton County residents to be active. The Hiawatha 3 on 3 Street Hockey tournament is a great way to get in 60 minutes of physical activity and enjoy a great community event!"
