With a goal to raise $40,000, supporters throughout Windsor and Essex County came together, played some volleyball and ending up raising $48,000 for The Hospice of Windsor and Essex County Inc. and the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre.

The N’Joy Life tournament is in memory of Joy Damphouse, whose courageous spirit and outstanding love of life inspired her husband Jim, and children Corie Lynn and Kyle to organize this tournament. It is an incredible testament to the strength of this family to use Joy’s fight against breast cancer, as a way to touch thousands in the community.

Funds donated to the Hospice will support the Hospice Residential Home in addition to the N’Joy Life Comfort Cart, packed with daily luxuries such as hygiene products, magazines and blankets as well as comforting items like music, toys and indulgent snacks, bringing a little piece of home to patients, families and their guests.

“I will never stop being amazed by what this community can do to help those in need,” says executive director of the Hospice, Carol Derbyshire. “We are so grateful to our supporters and especially to the Damphouse family for helping us to give back to our friends and neighbours with the N’Joy Life Comfort Cart in the Residential Home.”

The second annual tournament brought together more than 400 participants and 42 volunteers into an action packed beach volleyball adventure that showcases the generosity and compassion of the community.
