BENEFITING: GATEWAY SPECIAL HOCKEY INC
The Gateway Locomotives are a group of St. Louis youth athletes with developmental challenges who love ice hockey - we love their spirit and energy as they play the game we love in an environment adapted to their level of ability. During a Hockey4All Weekend in Louisville, Kentucky, we will honor and showcase the Gateway Locomotives to youth who face similar challenges here in Louisville. In addition to hosting two "friendship games" in which current youth hockey players from Louisville (abandoning team rivalries to play under the name of "Louisville All-Stars"!) will play alongside and against the Locomotives, we'll also be hosting a YES YOU CAN, Learn to Skate for Louisville youth with developmental challenges. We're hosting the Locomotives because they are young athletes who demonstrate the qualities inherent in the best athletes...and people: * dependability * self-reliance * willingness to share * personal accountability We can't wait to welcome them on March 10-12 and learn from one another!
