The Rotary group Honouring Indigenous Peoples (HIP) is asking for help with a project to distribute hockey equipment and concussion awareness education to Northern communities.
 
As you may be aware, sports related concussions have serious consequences. As sports equipment becomes more available, and youth participation increases, awareness and education is critical to get in front of injuries.
 
The HIP group is working to provide recreational opportunities by supplying hockey equipment - and is providing awareness and education regarding concussion injuries.
 
Help is needed to fund shipment of the equipment and the educational materials. If you, or your club, can help with this project, please read more and donate. Details and contact information can be found in the 'Read More' link.
 
The Rotary project called Honouring Indigenous Peoples is supported by many Rotary Districts in Southern Ontario including 6330. More information about HIP can be found on their website by following this link.
