WAHA is asking your help to help equip our sled hockey team. Please consider a one time donation of $550 to equip our kids with a sled and sticks. Donations can be sent to Tom Slocum, 10134 N. Port Washington Rd, Mequon, WI 53092 made payable to WAHA Sled Hockey. We are also looking for associations to have their PeeWee, Bantam, Midget, or High School programs to donate 1 hr. of ice time to have their able bodied team play our sled team. We will bring the equipment for your team to play in the sleds and compete. This a great team building event and an opportunity for your kids to find out for 1 hour, what it is like to be disabled for 1 hour!
