National Disabled Hockey Festival
The Hope, Inc. Hurricanes "manual" sled hockey team headed to Buffalo, NY for the National Disabled Hockey Festival April 9-13. Hope was one of 72 teams competing in numerous divisions, ranging from adult wounded warriors sled to amputee stand-up to youth sled...even a blind hockey game!
The Hurricanes took 3rd place in the youth "American C" division, playing teams from the Chicago area, Hershey, PA, and the host Buffalo Sabres. Click here to visit the official website.
But more important than wins and losses was the experience; meeting families from around the nation, team dinners, Niagra Falls...even the horrible trip out there (ask one of the families...sit down first, it's a long story :-)
