Champions Welcome Gretzky to Raise Money for Ride for Dad

2017 August 24

Ottawa, ON – Two generations of Gretzky’s will be in attendance next Thursday, August 24th when the Ottawa Champions host the Trois-Rivieres Aigles at RCGT Park.

Wayne Gretzky’s father Walter will throw out the ceremonial first pitch to his grandson Trevor as the Champions raise money in support of the Telus Motorcycle Ride for Dad.

Walter is the honourary celebrity for the Ride for Dad while Trevor plays the outfield for the Aigles, where he is batting .233 with two homeruns and 34 RBI.

The elder Gretzky will also be available to sign autographs and take pictures with fans during the game and the 50/50 proceeds will be donated to the Telus Motorcycle Ride for Dad.

Thursday’s game will be the last Dollar Hot Dog Night of the season, so fans are encouraged to come out and get their fill, see a few Gretzky’s, and help raise money for a great cause.

Ottawa Champions single game tickets can be purchased online at, by phone at 613-745-2255, or in person at the RCGT Park box office.
