NHL STAR SIDNEY CROSBY DONATES 87 SETS OF HOCKEY EQUIPMENT
- Sidney Crosby and his partner CCM Hockey have joined forces to provide 87 sets of hockey equipment to participants in three Hockey Nova Scotia programs for communities that are under-represented in the game.
- In the spirit of the holiday season, Crosby surprised eight participants from the three programs with their new hockey equipment on Monday afternoon via video and announced his commitment to fulfilling the donation of the 87 sets in the new year.
- After learning about the programs in his home province, Crosby wanted to do his part in ensuring that the new participants could have easier access to the game.
“I wanted to be sure they had the best experience learning the game,” said Crosby.
- The three programs that will benefit from Crosby’s donation are the Hockey Nova Scotia Black Youth Ice Hockey Program, the Hockey Nova Scotia Indigenous Female Hockey Academy, and the Hockey Nova Scotia–ISANS New Canadians Hockey Program.
“Having the right equipment is the first step to getting started,” Crosby said.
“We are beyond proud to partner with Sidney Crosby and Hockey Nova Scotia on helping to give more players the opportunity to experience hockey,” said Caroline Losson, Chief Marketing Officer at CCM Hockey.
“We are committed to growing the game and hope that these players will grow to love the game as much as Sidney does,” Losson said.
- The goal of the three Hockey Nova Scotia programs that will benefit from the donation is to introduce the sport to populations that are under-represented in the province’s rinks.
“We are so grateful to Sidney and to CCM Hockey for this very generous donation and we know it will go a long way in helping these children fall in love with our game,” said Amy Walsh, executive director of Hockey Nova Scotia.
