The Crohn’s and Colitis Hockey Tournament (CCHT) was created by myself, Jonathan Marcello. It is a non-contact charity hockey tournament to help raise money and awareness for Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), a chronic debilitating disease that affects over 200,000 Canadians with 9,000 new cases every year. We welcome both boys and girls team at most levels of hockey skills. We divide our divisions based on the teams skill level (House league, select..etc.). We guarantee three games for each team and a forth for teams that make the finals. This tournament allows teams to put together players that would not normally play together during their regular hockey season. For example friends and family members that generally play on other teams or leagues.
Please support our goal to help save and improve the lives of children and adults suffering with IBD. Our goal is to prevent more lives from being impacted from this life altering disease, and contribute to the journey of finding a cure. No matter the amount, your donation will aid in the research needed to find a life-saving cure. Within the past decade, the amount of children who have been diagnosed with this unrelenting disease has increased by over thirty percent, changing the way they get to live their lives for eternity. We’re relying on you to help us make a difference. Your donation can help improve a life.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or wish to participate within the tournament.

Please help support this cause by participating in our tournament. We welcome both males and females who are eligible to play in the following levels: peewee, bantam, midget and adults. We put effort into creating equal and fair teams based on a team’s skill level (house league, select, etc.). Three games are guaranteed, and a fourth will be played if a team is qualified to the finals. We allow you to enter as an individual player, or an entire team. Please register today, limited spots are available.
Without your dedicated help and support we could not do what we do. The tournament in its entirety is largely successful due to each and every sponsorship in which we receive, no matter the size of contribution or donation. Each year we gather together and put our thanks to our sponsors for their help and support to the tournament. If it were not for the substantial individuals who provide us with donations and offerings to help with prizes and games, then our tournament would not achieve the success it does yearly. We would like to showcase our immense gratitude to our sponsors, though words cannot convey our true appreciation. We would like to take this opportunity to thank each individual who supports us every year in spreading awareness on Crohn’s and Colitis.
Each year we gather together to watch the initial puck drop of the tournament. A member from each team is chosen, as well as representatives from different sponsorships, to celebrate the start of the tournament and its goal to spread awareness for Crohn’s and Colitis. This commemorates the annual dedicated work and time thoroughly put into the tournament’s success from our CCHT team.
It is with our great pleasure to announce that Jonathan has raised over $45,000 in four years with his Annual Crohn's and Colitis Hockey Tournament (CCHT...Play for a Cure). All money benefits both Crohn’s and Colitis Canada and Robbie's Rainbow for IBD Research and Treatment. We couldn’t have done it without all our sponsors, donors, volunteers, participates, Allandale Recreational CCHT cheque presentation centre staff and community. Thank you for your support, you helped make a difference and we are very grateful.
