The Alberni Valley Bulldogs will be raising funds at tonight’s game against the Victoria Grizzlies for former head coach Nolan Graham.
Graham was struck by a vehicle in Waterville earlier this week, suffering skull fractures and minor brain injuries.
A GoFundMe account has been set up for Graham and his family: you can find it here.
Although Graham is currently out of the ICU, he will need “extensive physiotherapy and countless other steps” on the road to recovery.
The Bulldogs announced today that all frisbee sales and program sales at tonight’s game will be donated to Graham.
Nolan Graham signed with the Alberni Valley Bulldogs in 2009 after a three-year stint as assistant coach with the Nanaimo Clippers.
During his time behind the bench, the Bulldogs were named BCHL regular season Coastal Conference Champions for the first time in franchise history, and set a franchise record for regular season wins.
Graham left the organization to pursue a coaching opportunity at the NCAA level in 2010.
Game 6 between the Bulldogs and the Grizzlies starts at 7 p.m. at Weyerhaeuser Arena. The Bulldogs currently have a 3-2 lead against the Grizzlies.
