Throngs of people enjoyed the winter weather on Sunday, February 10th and all that Canalside offers, including The Sled Hockey Foundation’s (SHF) Just Try It event – always free of charge to participants.
The event, sponsored by Mass Mutual New York State, saw nearly 40 people get in a sled to experience sled hockey. Adam Page, of Lancaster, NY, and a three-time Paralympic Sled Hockey gold medalist with Team USA, took to the ice to skate with everyone.
“It’s great to see so many people come out and try this sport,” Adam commented. “I am especially happy to see lots of young people here, including those with disabilities – that’s what it’s all about.”
These events are at no cost to the public as the SHF works to promote the great sport of sled hockey and encourage participation by children and adults with mobility disabilities – while able-bodied people love it as well.
The SHF encourages people to support their important work by visiting the website and donating. All contributions support the SHF to grow adaptive sport opportunities for people with disabilities.
