Hockey card raises funds for War Amps CHAMPs

Recently, local resident Adam Kingsmill was invited to participate in Hockey Canada’s second annual NextGen Prospect Sledge Hockey Camp in Montreal.

After three days of ice times and dryland training, 16 players from across the country were selected to participate in a three-game series against the USA in the Defi Sportif AlterGo Games in Montreal from April 28-30.

Kingsmill was one of two goalies chosen to play on Hockey Canada’s National Development Sledge Hockey team.

Results were unavailable at press time.

“This is a huge opportunity for me and I am going to make the most of it,” said Kingsmill on the weekend.

He returned to Smithers on Monday and after a short rest, will return to Montreal with the Team BC Sledge Hockey team to participate in the 2017 Canadian Sledge Hockey Championships May 11-13.

In March, he travelled to Vancouver to personally deliver a $1,000 cheque to the War Amps of Canada. The funds were raised through the donations received for his Upper Deck Trading Card.

His family cannot thank everyone enough for generously donating.

The cards were shipped all across Canada and the U.S. The child amputees in attendance were delighted to receive a personally signed card from Adam.
