David Topping is a long time hockey enthusiast. Besides being a beer league goalie, and certified ice hockey referee, David works as a professional photographer. Earlier this year, David had a benign brain tumor removed. While the tumor was thankfully non cancerous, he is still undergoing treatments for complications resulting from the surgery.
This year at the DAWG Bowl IV, the hockey community came out in record numbers to offer support. Along with Mike Haynes (Sports Radio Professional), fellow CIHRA referees, DAWG Nation Hockey foundation is pleased to offer a grant for $11,680 to assist with his medical bills. We continue to wish David well on his road to health.
