When a Dream Becomes a Goal
Like many other young Canadian’s, our son Ryan, (age 15yrs) has always dreamt of becoming a hockey player. He played minor hockey growing up from Timbit’s to now, always on the travelling teams, however not usually on the top tier teams. Now, after a steady progression upwards, he has made a
team in the Nova Scotia Major Midget Hockey League – the UPS South Shore Mustangs.
Motivation and Goals: A powerful Combination
Together, they’re not only the greatest source of human power but the seed of all success. When motivation is combined with a goal, there’s little than can be done to stop someone. Since learning that he has been selected to play on the South Shore UPS Major Midget Mustangs hockey team for the 2017-18 season, it’s become apparent that Ryan’s hockey dream is no longer a vague wish but rather a clear goal. He will be moving to the Town of Bridgewater, Nova Scotia to attend Grade 10 and live with a host family for the better part of the hockey season.
As parents, my wife and I, are very encouraged with the new-found focus and dedication to off-ice summer training. It’s hard not to get behind his goal and do everything we can do to support him. Much of the support comes in the way of fundraising, and boy do we have to fundraise. We’re selling tickets, soliciting corporate sponsorship and of course asking for your support by way of this campaign. The anticipated expenses for the season are approximately $7,000 (registration & billeting). Our goal for this campaign is $2,000. We kindly ask for any support you may be able to offer in the next 60 days.
