Thank you again to the Canadian Association of New York for including the Wheelchair Sports Federation in their 2020 Maple Leaf Ball.
Each year, the CANY holds its gala to rase funds for Ice Hockey In Harlem, Terry Fox Run for Cancer Research, and Canada's National Ballet School
The event was held at the Metropolitan Club, and guests of honor include Lisa Hasenfratz, CEO of Linamar Corporation, and Mike Meyers.
The video to the right was shown at the event. the WSF part starts right around 3:35.
Thank you to my fellow Canadians!
On a very cold and wintery day, the WSF Sled Rangers travelled to Binghamton to participate in their disabled hockey festival. We played the local kids team and then our kids went out against the local adult team too!
We made new friends and had a great old time. We hope to skate with these guys again soon.
On Friday March 9 the Canadian Association of New York hosted its signature event, the Maple Leaf Ball, at the Time Warner Center in New York City. The CANY has been (and continue to be) very generous supporters of the WSF New York Sled Rangers. This year was no exception. With about 300 people in attendance, and Gordon Lightfoot crooning a song, the CANY showed off our program to a roomful of hockey lovers. This is a great event, and I am so proud and humbled to be a part of it. The CANY's other organizations are also very worthy -- Ice Hockey in Harlem, Terry Fox Run for Cancer Research, and Canada's National Ballet School. Thank you especially goes to my good friend Dean Keyworth for his tireless work in putting on this event, and for being our friend.
Gabriel is one of our rising stars in our sled hockey program, and this neat little video from Scholastic News shows how Gabriel is well on his way to becoming a well-rounded athlete in several sports. Go Gabriel!!
