What was this event all about?
First and foremost, The Hockey Foundation is a charity. Our global mission is to empower under-served youth, promote social change, peace and prosperity, and support community development through hockey.
In order to make Hockey Goes Higher a reality, The Hockey Foundation partnered with Geronimo Stars (based in Germany) to procure the boards necessary for the event rink and in turn donated them to the local hockey arena that's been under construction (on-again, off-again) for a decade. These boards will allow the arena to get closer to completion, and once completed, will not only extend the hockey season by a couple of months but will also provide employment opportunities in the community that never before existed. In turn, this arena will enable The Hockey Foundation to grow our overall footprint and affect more lives in the Ladakh region.
Beyond the obvious charitable aspects of this event (which also included a donation of approx. 800 pieces of equipment - bringing our total to nearly 8,000), this event made more people aware of the efforts of The Hockey Foundation, which we hope will encourage more individuals and organizations to support our efforts to change lives around the world via hockey.
There are still great rewards available from our fundraising campaign for "Hockey Goes Higher" through Generosity.com.
