Help Get Hockey Gear For Locals

Misty and myself have decided to par take on a once in a lifetime trip to break a Guinness Record for a hockey game played at the highest elevation in northern India! We will be travelling to a place called Leh up in the Himalayas, about 3500m in elevation, on January 29. We will spend 3 days there to acclimatize and play a few exhibition games with the local team. From there we travel about 6 hours by bus into the Ladakh region where we will break the Guinness record on a full size rink at 4000m they have constructed for us.





The gofundme has been set up because it is very hard to get proper gear for the locals, since hockey is an odd sport to be played in India. Misty and I are the only players from Kelowna and Calgary going as far as we know so we decided we would like to contribute some gear to the locals on behalf of our country and community. The goal is to raise enough money so we can buy a few sets of gear that we will play in and then donate to the locals of Leh. Any of the extra funds raised will go to getting as much sticks/tape/gear as possible and maybe a few pieces of Team Canada apparel as gifts.  We will have some rewards for anyone who wants to go above and beyond and donate over $100. For anyone that donates over $100 we will have a thank you package put together including a puck from event, photo with the local team, and a thank you note. Anyone who donates over $200 we'll get a jersey from the event and try and get it autographed by the India team, as well as a picture and thank you note. We appreciate any kind of donation though as anything helps to this cause.


We thank everyone that takes the time to donate and will keep you posted on this journey as it happens. Help us achieve this goal to represent our country well and leave our mark on India ice hockey. Thank you everyone!
