Dear South Pee Wee C Families,
Minnesota youth & high school hockey teams are encouraged to come up with creative fundraising ideas that promote teamwork, empathy and community involvement that will support the work of Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare in St. Paul, MN, while also having the chance to win a great prize package compliments of Hiway and the Minnesota Wild. Our South Pee Wee C 2018-2019 team is coming together to support Gillette Children's through the Hockey Kids4 Kids program.
Hiway's Hockey Kids4Kids was introduced last year when Hiway Federal Credit Union® (Hiway) partnered with the Minnesota Wild and Minnesota Hockey to encourage youth hockey players to use the teamwork and leadership skills they practice on the ice to come together and raise funds for kids with disabilities and complex medical needs.
Hiway Hockey Kids4Kids encourages youth hockey teams to think beyond themselves and come up with their own creative ideas to raise funds for Gillette Children's to help other kids who may not be able to play hockey due to serious medical conditions or injuries. Teams that raise $500 or more will be qualified to win a one-of-a-kind team party in a suite at the Minnesota Wild - St. Louis Blues game on Sunday, February 24, 2019. The winning team, selected at random, will also be feted with an exclusive pregame tour of the Xcel Energy Center, meet members of the Minnesota Wild and receive merchandise from the Wild and Hiway. All teams that participate in the program will be invited to a complimentary skate session at the Xcel Energy Center. Each member of any team that raises at least $500 will also receive a limited-edition Hockey Kids4Kids cap.
Our South Pee Wee C Team has already started off their season by completing their first team service project! They prepared and donated over 200 sandwiches to feed the homeless. For their efforts, a donation for Gillette's Hockey4kids Program was donated on their behalf. Our Coaches & Team Managers are actively planning our team's next community involvement project! These are great team building experiences for our players off the ice and wonderful opportunities to give back to our community, all while raising money for Gillette Children's through the Hockey Kids4Kids Program!
Please join us in support of Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare through your donation.
