For the third time in three months The Sled Hockey Foundation (SHF) partnered with the Wounded Warrior Project to conduct a terrific sled hockey event on Saturday, April 14th at Northtown Center.

The participating wounded warriors and their spouses enjoyed the recreational and therapeutic benefits of trying sled hockey.  The two-hour event included a variety of partner-based skills challenges, as well as plenty of time to just enjoy the ice.

Greg Hancock and Allan O’Keefe, both combat stress recovery specialists, were excited to be back in the Buffalo area to work with the veterans and put on a terrific week of activities for the participants.

Greg stated, “Many of these guys came to this rink tonight uncertain about what they would experience but all of them, and their wives, have had a great time – it’s been special.”

Steve Wischmann, the SHF’s Acting Executive Director, and Dr. Brad Hopkins and Jeff Ventre, both members of the SHF Board of Directors, coordinated the program and assisted the participants in getting geared up and on the ice.  

The SHF and The Wounded Warrior Project will continue their work together in providing unique recreational and therapeutic events incorporating sled hockey experiences.
