As most of you know I had a couple surgeries in the middle of the hockey season. Thanks to God I was able to play with my team in the final tournament of the season; and we won the national championship in Florida in April.
In May, I will once again participate in the Colfax Marathon 5k with some of my teammates to raise money to ensure we can continue to play the sport we love!
I am so thankful to be a part of an amazing team as they are not only great teammates or friends, but a second family who have been very supportive, especially during my recovery.
Thank you in advance for supporting me!

What is sled hockey? Sled hockey was developed to give disabled athletes an avenue to participate in the game of hockey. Players sit in a bucket mounted frame, on two blades approximately 5 inches off the ice and use two half size sticks to propel themselves forward. While played differently, sled hockey has most of the same rules, and all of the same excitement. I encourage you to go to https://www.coloradosledhockey.org or google search sled hockey to see what sled hockey brings to these athletes.
