Five Hole for Food

The facts: 13 cities. 18 Days. 11,000 kilometres. One epic road trip starting in Newfoundland and ending in British Columbia.

Five Hole for Food founder, Richard Loat and his friends are setting off on a coast-to-coast tour for the sixth consecutive year, stopping in 13 cities along the way, and playing ball hockey to feed hungry Canadians.
