Benefactors: Grand Rapids Sled Wings Hockey Team
The Grand Rapids Sled Wings consist of a junior and an adult team of
athletes with physical disabilities. These teams are sponsored by Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital’s Wheelchair and Adaptive Sports program
maryfreebed.com/sports and supported by the generous donation of the
Rinks To Links Golf Outing. Sled hockey is ice hockey for people with
disabilities, and is a hard-hitting, competitive, intense sport. Any person
with a physical disability preventing them from playing on a stand-up team
is eligible to play.
The Grand Rapids Sled Wings were the first sled hockey team in Michigan, upon their
founding in 2001, and travel all over the country playing against other sled hockey teams.
The goal of the Rinks to Links organization is to raise funds via an annual charity golf
outing with 100% of the proceeds to be donated to the Grand Rapids Sled Wings to help
them defray costs associated with travel, fees and other expenses.
