"Hockey Is For Everyone" said our newest board member Rob Kerr from Sports Net The Fan 960 and he made it so at the Saddledome. Thanks for including Comrie's in with all of these other fine organizations represented here such as Heros Hockey, KidSport, Flames Even Strength Program, Football Hockey Link, etc.  For this Picture we were joined by Chris Bright ( Left ) from Hockey Canada ( Board member) , Kevin Kobelka from Hockey Calgary ( Board Member) Craig Conroy from the Calgary Flames, yours truly Russ Gillespie, Rob Kerr himself and Harnarayan Singh from Hockey Night In Punjabi. Really great day as always Rob and great work in the community overall.
With the help of these fine organizations we have been able to Safely Store our gently used sports equipment until the day we give it all away!  Thanks to the C Can Store, Ability Lock and Safe, and East Calgary Twin Arenas for Partnering with us to help with "Getting Kids Into Gear!". You are making a world of difference with your generosity.

Hi Adriel,
 
This is Ethan, you gave me all my sports equipment like ski, skates, and baseball. I am very happy! Thank you very much for them. I play with them so much and my favorite one is the baseball equipment. I get to bring it to school and play with my friends. It is fun! I wish that more kids will donate their used sports gear so others can also play and be active. Thank you again!

This is Hugo. I am happy with the sports equipment that you gave us. When we went to your office, I felt like I’m in a sports heaven! There are so much sports stuff that we like and you have been so nice to give them to us! I hope more people will donate so other people can be active like us. When I am bigger, I want to volunteer and help you because you helped me so much!  Thank you and I hope you have a great day! Bye.
