Bret Hart BOOKOn Sunday, December 2 the Toronto Marlies Hockey Club will welcome legendary Canadian wrestler Bret “Hitman” Hart to Ricoh Coliseum to speak on behalf of Stroke Recovery Canada, a program of March of Dimes Canada.For over 20 years Bret entertained fans around the world winning numerous wrestling championships and has become one of Canada’s most recognizable icons.

In 2002, Bret overcame a devastating stroke, a defeat he calls his greatest victory. Bret’s stroke caused partial paralysis requiring months of physical therapy, but through his determination, he made a successful recovery.

Over the past year, Bret has been helping Stroke Recovery Canada and March of Dimes in their mission to educate Canadian stroke survivors on how to “Survive and Thrive” after a stroke.

Bret will be on hand for the ceremonial puck drop, and will sign autographs and take pictures with fans.

The Toronto Marlies have provided all supporters of Bret “Hitman” Hart and the March of Dimes special tickets discounted to $20 for side seats, with $5 going to March of Dimes and accessible seats have been discounted to $17 with $2 going to March of Dimes.
