TORONTO - The Jokers Hockey Club have had a busy offseason, and not just aboard the Joke on the Water II. The team stepped up for the Highway for Heroes Tree Campaign. The campaign has a goal of planting two million trees along Highway 401 (a.k.a. the Highway of Heroes) as a tribute to the men and women who have served in Canada's armed forces, and a living memorial to 117,000 who have lost their lives doing so. In addition to improving the view, the two million trees will sequester tons of carbon dioxide, clean particulates from the air and naturally filter our water. The Jokers, along with their corporate partner, Safety First, are
proud to be involved with such a worthy cause. For more information on Highway of Heroes tribute go to: https://hohtribute.ca/about-hoh/
