Our goal is to support Patients affected by Disabilities and their Families. Therefore we will support Disabled Athletes through our Primary Local Beneficiaries the Colorado Adaptive Sports Foundation & Colorado Sled Hockey Association. In addition, our Additional Local Beneficiaries will be the Dawg Nation Hockey Foundation.
The Colorado Adaptive Sports Foundation aims to bolster independence, improve self-confidence, elevate social interaction and enhance quality of life through organized Team Sports. CASF is for people of all ages throughout Colorado who have physical disabilities including spinal cord injuries, spina-bifida, amputations and cerebral palsy. CASF raises funds for Adaptive Team Sports across the state of Colorado including Sled Hockey, Wheelchair Basketball, Wheelchair Softball, Wheelchair Lacrosse, Adaptive Curling and Power Soccer, representing over 200 Adult & Youth Athletes. Over $550,000 has been raised since inception in 2004. For more information about the Colorado Adaptive Sports Foundation and the programs we offer, please visit www.coloradoadaptivesports.org.
The Colorado Sled Hockey Association is one of the largest sled hockey programs in the country. Sled Hockey is a sport played by people with physical disabilities including spinal cord injuries, amputations, spin-bifida, etc. Utilizing “sleds” with hockey skates and sticks with metal picks on one end, players can propel themselves down the ice with grace and speed. Played almost exactly like stand-up hockey, sled hockey is a unique way for people with physical disabilities to get out of the wheelchairs or prosthetics and experience what is widely known as the ultimate team sport. More than just learning hockey, participants develop lifelong friends with those they play with and learn valuable life-skills that will prove to enhance their lives moving forward. Sled Hockey, "The Most Exhilarating Out of Chair Experience”, was formed in 1995, and in 1996, joined with the Colorado Avalanche to become the first NHL-affiliated Sled Hockey team in the Country. Since then, the CSHA has expanded to include a Youth Program and 3 Adult Teams (A, B and Wounded Warriors). the teams have combined for multiple League and National Titles. The Adult A Team has won 3 National Championships and the Adult B Team won the Pacific Sled Hockey League Title. They have Players from up and down the Front Range and hold Clinics regularly throughout CO to grow the Sport. Many of the Adult Players started in the Youth Program. Being involved with Team Sports has helped them become confident Adults, go on to attend College and become completely self-sufficient Adults. The 2017-18 Budget was a little over $80,000 with $65,000 raised through Donations and the remaining being self-funded by the Players & Families. The funds raised through the Mustaches & Mullets 2 Charity Adult Hockey Tournament sent 4 Colorado Sled Hockey Athletes to the National Training Camp in Michigan and 2 of those Athletes made the US Sled Hockey Team that won the Gold Medal in Sochi, Russia in 2014. the funds raised through the 2016 & 2017 Mustaches & Mullets 3 & 4 Charity Adult Hockey Tournaments paid for multiple Ice slots where 40 Disabled Athletes were able to practice & prepare for each Season.
