Humboldt Broncos survivor & bestselling author Kaleb Dahlgren to headline 8th Annual Timberwolves Legacy Night

August 18, 2022

A different time of day. A different time of year. But the same inspiring, meaningful event that has become an annual tradition in northern B.C.

Today, the University of Northern British Columbia announced the 8th Annual Timberwolves Legacy Night, with Kaleb Dahlgren serving as the event’s keynote speaker.

A #1 bestselling author and university hockey player, Dahlgren is a survivor of the Humboldt Broncos accident that claimed 16 lives and left only 13 survivors. Dahlgren is sure to inspire with his incredible story, captivating the audience with his unwavering honesty and unrelenting perseverance.

“We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Kaleb Dahlgren for what should be an incredible evening,” said Loralyn Murdoch, UNBC’s Director of Athletics & Recreation. “Kaleb is truly an amazing person. He has an incredible story. I can’t wait for everyone to hear from him and to learn from him.”

The Timberwolves Legacy event serves as a major fundraiser for UNBC Athletics, with every dollar raised going directly towards scholarships and bursaries for TWolves student-athletes.

“Every year, this event exceeds our expectations. Our goal is to find ways to improve and grow the event and its impact every year,” said Murdoch. “We really do rely on this event to provide scholarships and bursaries for our student-athletes, and the generosity of the community astounds me annually.”

The event’s name, the “Timberwolves Legacy Night,” is reflective of a major change to the fundraiser. For the first time, the event will move from a breakfast to start the day, to an evening complete with craft beers, wine, appetizers, and entertainment.

“The breakfast has been a wonderful tradition for seven years, but we saw this as a tremendous opportunity to try a new format,” said Murdoch. “I am so excited to make this change, work with some local companies, and welcome our amazing supporters for a wonderful evening.”

For the eighth consecutive year, Canadian Tire will be the Timberwolves Legacy Night presenting sponsor.
