Sunday, Oct. 4 is a random act of kindness day, on the second anniversary of the passing of Maple Ridge hockey player Noah Trulsen, who died while playing a game in Langley.

She said the first social media post for the random acts of kindness day was shared over 700 times, “and we would love to see that even higher.”

“Our focus from the day he died has been to keep his memory alive, and this year it has been difficult due to COVID,” she said.

“The second year has been much harder than the first. I think because we went through it quite numb,” Trulsen added. “Now everything is so clear, and each memory is bittersweet, yet painful at the same time.”

The family also gave out two scholarships in Noah’s name. One went to Mitchell Shelton of Ridge Meadows Minor Hockey, and the other to a player within the PCAHA organization, for a juvenile hockey player. The family received a letter from an accounting student at SFU, Isaac Brown, who is a goaltender in Surrey Minor Hockey, thanking them for the funds.

“Because of COVID, we are unable to host our annual hockey game and fundraiser night, but we will be possibly hosting an online FB fundraiser and a 50/50 draw,” she said. “We would gladly accept any donations towards the scholarship funds as we give out $1,700 a year.”
