Once again we are teaming with the University of Denver for “Dawg Nation Night”!
This one will be held on Friday, November 23rd as the Pioneers take on the Providence Friars. We have discounted tickets (only $15) and even a portion of that is going to Dawg Nation!
During the first intermission Dawg Nation will host a sled hockey exhibition that will include members of the USA National Paralympic team and a couple very special guests. Alongside of these Olympic heroes will be none other than Ryan Straschnitzki and Jacob Wasserman!
Ryan and Jacob were members of the Humboldt Broncos and both sustained injuries that have left them paralyzed. These courageous teammates are not yet ready to end their respective hockey careers and have now taken up sled hockey. Both will be on the Magness ice on November 23rd!! This will be the first time since the horrific accident that these two brave young men will be on the ice together and by clicking the link below you can be there in person to cheer them on!
Get your tickets now as these will surely go very fast. We look forward to seeing you at rink! GO DU!!!
We are building a bridge between the disabled athlete, the able-bodied athlete and the educational community.
It is our goal to design, build and operate the nation’s first three sheet hockey arena intended to support both disabled and able-bodied athletes.
We, the Dawg Nation Hockey Foundation, are committed to supporting the hockey family. By accessing the unique power and compassion of the hockey community, we celebrate life and provide help in times of need.
In January of 2011, a small group of adult recreation league hockey players decided to create a foundation to help others. What started as an idea to honor a fallen friend and “make a difference” has blossomed into an important resource for families in need.
Since its inception the Foundation has been able to give out over $1,300,000 dollars to positively impact the lives of many families in need. For the weekend warrior recovering from a nasty injury or a family dealing with a serious illness, Dawg Nation has provided resources and amazing acts of human kindness that have not only changed the lives of our recipients, but also our volunteers at the same time.
It has been an amazing journey so far, and absolutely could not have occurred without the countless volunteer hours of many, and the incredible generosity of many more.
If you haven’t had a chance yet, please take a few minutes to check out our “Giving Back” page. Our recipients are a very diverse group of men and women, and they’re young and not so young. But what they all have in common is that they are part of our hockey community, and they’ve gone through a difficult period of their lives. Dawg Nation exists to help these people.
A huge “Thank You” to all of you that have made all this possible! You have made and continue to make the world a better place.
