Since the beginning of the Children’s Treatment Centre’s Sledge Hockey Program, Chatham-Kent Tim Hortons locations have provided annual financial support to the program, helping ensure that the children in our community, of all abilities, can participate in exciting, inclusive recreation opportunities.

This year, Chatham-Kent Tim Hortons locations donated $4,000 to the CTC’s Sledge Hockey Program, which covers the costs of ice-time during the Centre’s winter recreation season. The Centre’s Sledge Hockey Program invites CTC clients, of all abilities, to meet on the ice every Tuesday to participate in an evening of high-energy, physical activity, while building life skills such as turn taking, transitions, teamwork, and social skills.

Accompanied by Centre Recreation Therapists, a handful of dedicated volunteers, and Ashley Goure, assistant captain of the Canadian Women’s Sledge Hockey Team, participants enjoy personalized coaching suited to their unique abilities, while experiencing out-of-Centre community resources.
