The Eighth Annual “Rinks to Links” 2015
Golf Outing was a Tremendous Success!
Thank you to all the Sponsors, Participants, and Families!
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.
