Hockey Player Surprises Dad

Posted by HockeyTube on Dec 1st, 2014


It was a special night for Vernon Vipers forward TJ Dumonceaux who was able to surprise his father with a special Movember presentation before a BCHL game against the Trail Smoke Eaters. Earlier this year Dumonceaux’s father Perry was diagnosed with prostate cancer and TJ wanted to use the team’s Movember fundraiser to do something special for his Dad.

So with the help of his teammates and an online campaign, the Kelowna native quietly went to work to try to raise $3,000.00 to donate to Cancer research on behalf of his father. On Saturday, November 29th the team convinced the senior Dumonceaux to come onto the ice to supposedly present his son a ‘community award’. Instead TJ surprised his dad with his framed Movember jersey and a cheque for $5,641.00 to be donated to the Canadian Cancer society. But the story doesn’t end there, the veteran forward would go on to score two goals and was named the game’s first star!
