It was a busy off-season for Mark Woolley.
The St. Thomas native had to prepare for his third season in the OHL and his first training camp with the Owen Sound Attack. It also happens to be the first year he is eligible for the NHL Entry Draft.
It would be more than understandable if he spent his summer focusing on hockey and only hockey.
But that’s not Mark Woolley. Knowing his platform as an OHLer, he thought there must be a way he could help others just like him.
That’s why he launched Woolley’s Warriors. The nonprofit aims to conquer diabetes and provide support and awareness for young athletes living every day with Type 1, and to raise funds to send kids to Diabetes Canada D-Camps
