Equipment Exchange Doing Good
We gave leftover equipment from the Hockey Equipment Exchange in September to Chicago Special Hockey. Mike was with his nephew to pick up the equipment. His nephew has been part of Chicago Special Hockey for 7 years and has really enjoyed the experience.
Background: Chicago Special Hockey (CSH) is dedicated to providing children and adults with developmental disabilities the opportunity to play hockey. CSH team members range in age from 5 to 55, and include both male and female athletes. The team is comprised of players that have Autism, Down Syndrome or other intellectual disabilities. We have over 100 players and continue to grow!
