You can help too!
Please spread the word that we need both winter and street hockey gear from around Calgary and the Bow Valley area. And if you know anyone who would like to help with shipping, give us a shout!

As kids are searching out equipment and lacing up for another year of hockey in Alberta, over 1000 kilos of Alberta-donated gear is making its way to the highest hockey rinks in the world in the Western Himalayas.
Cynthia Hunt and the CHAI gang are celebrating 10 years of using hockey to get kids off the streets, away from drugs and back into school in Ladakh.

Cynthia is in the Bow Valley schools this week: Thanking kids for last year's videos on "I am, I believe" and challenging students to exchange videos of Maths and Physics taught on the rink this year.
