Engineering student Evan Latsky to run half-marathon in hockey gear for charity

Posted on October 18, 2018


FEBREZE ME: “I think it’s a great way to combine my passion for both running and hockey while supporting a great cause like Right to Play,” says third-year Computer Engineering student, Evan Latsky.


Third-year computer engineering student Evan Latsky is gearing-up to run the Scotiabank Toronto Half-Marathon on October 21. He will stand out from the crowd, though, because he will be running the 21-kilometer course in full hockey gear.

“No skates though,” says Latsky. “It’s as if I step off the ice, take off my skates, put on my running shoes, and go.”

Latsky is raising money for Right to Play, an organization that empowers youth in developing countries through the power of play.

“It’s a cause that really resonates with me because playing sports is such a big part of my life and I feel like it should be a part of everyone’s life,” he says. “I’ve been fundraising lots and I want to make $2,500. Running and raising money for charity brings balance to my life. I think balance is really good for engineering students, something that’s not talked about enough. ”
