The University of Akron Ice Hockey team is back at it again. On January 11th UofA Ice Hockey will play host to the Cleveland Mighty Barons Sled Hockey team. That’s right, the boys will trade their skates for sleds in a fundraiser game to benefit both teams. This game is one of the 2013 must see games of the year. Imagine a group of guys who have skated their whole lives trying to go toe to toe with a group of kids who have more than likely never put on a pair of skates. Instead of ice skates there are sleds. Instead of one stick to shoot with there will be two sticks that you have to use to steady yourself, steer yourself, and shoot the puck with. This will be a humbling and inspiring experience for the UofA hockey team.
Here is what I ask of you. Come out and pack the Ice Complex. Make the Cleveland Mighty Barons feel like rockstars. Cheer loudly. Help make this a long lasting memory for these kids.
Puck drops at 8:40 pm on Friday January 11th at the Ice Complex in North Canton, Ohio. Admission is by donation and the profit will be split between the two team. Please consider donating generously. Sleds cost around $600 a piece and ice time doesn’t come cheap. Help these boys continue to live out their hockey playing dreams.
The Center Ice Sports Complex is located at 8319 Port Jackson Ave. NW, North Canton, Ohio 44720
Come on down and as an added bonus you get to hear me sing the National Anthem
