Giving Veterans a Place to be at Home
Each day 22 U.S. Military Veterans take their own lives…
The Skate for the 22 Foundation was formed to reduce that tragically high number.
We provide hockey, learn to skate, and skills development sessions at no cost to our players, to get veterans back into a supportive, team environment.
– Increases public awareness of the statistically significant rate of suicides among military veterans.
– Provides financial assistance and other support to families of veteran suicide victims, along with scholarships to their children
– Conducts suicide prevention seminars for our players and their families
Everything starts with the greatest sport of all – hockey
