Friends ready pond hockey tourney in memory of Hollis teen
Cameron "Cam" Ricard, 17, a senior at Hollis Brookline High School, was killed when he lost control of his 2009 Nissan Titan on the Exit 1 on-ramp to the F.E. Everett Turnpike in Nashua on Dec. 9.
Cam's father, Robert Ricard, said that shortly after his son's death, the family established a scholarship fund in his name, and when Cameron's friends came up with the idea of creating a pond hockey tournament to raise money for the fund, the family was completely on board.
"Our main goal is to make this scholarship huge while enjoying a fun day of hockey," he said.
"They're turning people away at this point," said Ricard. "It tells us that Cam knew a lot of people, was well connected, but most importantly, that he was well-liked."
"It's been a tough three weeks for us. We're still in a state of shock," he said. "We're trying to deal with the accident while trying to put our lives back together."
"It's a great feeling," said Ricard. "I can't put into words how thrilled we are about the community support we've gotten."
"It's going to be a fun day to celebrate my son," said Ricard.
