History of the cup

This fun and entertaining fund-raising hockey game began in 2007 to commemorate our colleague and mentor who died after a courageous battle with cancer. Professor Aftab Patla was a professor of Kinesiology at the University of Waterloo for 25 years with a research interest in health, aging and human movement.

The hockey game pits a team of Kinesiology Undergraduate Students against a team made up of Kinesiology Graduate Students, Faculty and Staff. Since 2007, we have raised over $30,000 towards an undergraduate Kinesiology scholarship in Professor Patla’s name through the generous support of alumni, faculty, staff, students, alumni, and members of our local community.
