Let’s think of all the equipment a hockey player needs to be safe in a game. Ice skates, sticks, and an array of safety gear to lessen their risk of serious injury. This usually includes a helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, mouth guard, protective gloves, heavily padded shorts, shin pads and a neck guard. As for the goaltenders they wear masks and much bulkier, specialized equipment designed to protect them from many direct hits from the puck. So with all that equipment taken care of who’s going to pay for the ice?
The Women’s Ice Hockey Team at the University of Delaware soon realized that they were the ones who would have to get the money together to pay for ice time. However, the girls already owed $8,000! Car washes at local gas stations were helping but the girls knew they needed a substantial way to raise funds. Under a different team leader, the team had worked twice with CampusFundraiser before, having earned $4,331 to date.
Current team leader, Amy Christinzio first learned about CampusFundraiser from another team member and decided to give it a try. When describing the experience, Amy explained that it was a great feeling to have the whole team working together to help pay for time on the ice. Amy also tells us “CampusFundraiser gave me all the directions and support I needed, their goal was to help us, so we knew it would be worth it.”
After earning a total of $1,800 during their last fundraiser the women’s ice hockey team is skating their way out onto the ice with a little less debt!
