The 23rd Annual Heatwave Beach Volleyball and Beach Soccer Tournament held court at Ashbridges Bay and Woodbine Beach July 8 and 9.
The event raises funds and awareness for childhood cancer research at the Hospital for SickChildren (SickKids). To date, the weekend volleyball events have raised more than $4 million for childhood cancer research.
Heatwave has faced a difficult season including an abnormally rainy spring and frequent flooding of the Toronto beaches. Fortunately, this did not stop the event from taking place, which remains the World’s Largest Beach Volleyball Tournament in the Guinness World Record Holder.
