The Center Ice Foundation and Adaptive Sports Program of Ohio (ASPO)
are hosting a celebrity sled hockey game and we are hoping you would consider being a “Celebrity” participant!

The Game: The game will consist of 3 - 10 min periods versus ASPO’s Wildcats Sled Hockey Team.
You will have 10-15 minutes to warm up and receive instruction from a current sled hockey player.
After the game, spectators will have the opportunity to try skating in a hockey sled.

Purpose: To highlight opportunities for individuals and veterans with physical disabilities and raise funds to support the mission of ASPO.

About Sled Hockey: Sled hockey makes hockey accessible to individuals with physical disabilities through adaptive equipment.
Here is a video of the US National Sled Hockey Team https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NexwQLQfntQ .
No need to worry, the Celebrity Game will feature minimal, if any, body contact.

About ASPO:
ASPO is a nonprofit organization established to promote the health and wellness
of individuals with physical and visual disabilities through competitive and recreational adaptive sport opportunities across Ohio.
In Stark County, we offer sled hockey and wheelchair basketball.

Thank you very much for your consideration.
