BENEFITING: AMERICAN SPECIAL HOCKEY ASSOCIATION
I am a member of the United Commercial Travelers, UCT, a fraternal organization that has partnered with American Special Hockey Association. ASHA was created in 2000 for players with developmental disabilities. ASHA gives people of all ages and abilities a chance to learn and grow by playing hockey. There are over 50 ASHA Programs in 30 U.S. cities. ASHA provides an opportunity for children and young adults with disabilities to play hockey, who would be unable to join a typical hockey program. Many of the players have siblings who play hockey and have heroes on college and NHL teams, and get a chance to be a part of this great sport.
