Old York Road 2018 – 2019 Season Recipient

Thank you!

There are no other words to describe the joy you have brought into our lives, especially the lives of our children. We have five sons. All of them play some form of hockey. Their love of hockey was passed down as I played when I was younger. Unfortunately, it has been a very hard struggle keeping them playing ever since my wife was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. The medical bills are astronomical. We did not want to take away the sport our boys love to play, but were finding it very difficult to pay this year. You have now made it possible for our boys to play this season and all of us are extremely grateful to Rock for Hockey and ALL of the donors for what they have just done for us. Our children have been playing hockey since they were little, beginning with foot to roller to their ultimate favorite, ice. Watching them develop as players has been a parents pride and joy. They have all matured into competitive players, yet are always a team player and also respectful of the opponents they play against. They also help give back to their sport as they work and volunteer for their rink by helping the younger players, assisting the coaches, helping to ready the rink during the summer for the next season. They have learned all sides of how hockey works and realize it is more than just a game. They have gained a new respect for the sport they love.

For our children and our family, we thank you,

The Heydt Family
