The Wings of Steel sled hockey team gives a wide range of disabled
kids the opportunity to play hockey by skating on the ice on sleds, using their arms and two hockey sticks with picks to propel
them across the ice.
We are asking for any support that you can

A cash donation will help to pay directly for the cost of ice time, sleds
for athletes, and protective equipment for the hockey players.
A gift certificate or service credit would help up raise additional funds at
the golf tournament. All donations are tax deductible through our affiliation with Sled Hockey America,
a non-profit 501(3)c organization; 100% of monetary donations will be dispersed to the Wings of Steel.
course, we invite you to directly support our Golf Tournament by purchasing tickets or sponsoring one of the 18 holes.
For the past 10 years, the Virtua Wings of Steel has provided this athletic experience to physically disabled
kids, ages 6 through 18, who converge in Voorhees, NJ to play.
The philosophy of the Wings of Steel is to fully fund the cost of ice time and equipment through fundraising,
as many families of physically disabled children face financial challenges.
Our success is measured
in the smiles of the kids and their improved physical well-being. For a few, the success is even greater. Mt.
Ephraim’s Tim Jones and Riverside's Mike Torres will compete with the USA Sled Hockey team in the 2010 Paralympic
games. Up until January, 2006, Tim’s and Mike's home team was the Virtua Wings of Steel, and they
continues to practice with the team and mentor the younger players.
Every day, more and more children become involved
in this sport, some for recreation and some for competition. Not all are able to afford it, but we never
turn anyone away.
