Generous gift bolsters mission to make hockey accessible to all

As reported in The Pilot-Independent, an anonymous donor has gifted $60,000 to Walker (MN) Youth Hockey that the program’s president says will be used for "years to come" on a host of improvements ranging from equipment for youth programs to Zamboni upkeep, in addition to bolstering its financial aid program.

The non-profit organization and Sport Ngin partner has led the way in making the game more accessible for kids in northern Minnesota by offering free hockey and use of equipment for players 9 and under, and free hockey to all players 10 and under who have never been part of an association.

“I’m pleased I could support an organization that does so much for youth and our community,” the anonymous donor is quoted in the story.

Those community efforts mentioned by the donor also include Walker Youth Hockey’s S.K.A.T.E. program (Skaters Keep Achieving Through Education). Launched in 1993, the initiative strives to encourage, support, and reward youth hockey players who commit themselves to their schoolwork while enjoying the sport of hockey.
