Wynn Teams With Bruins to Donate Youth Hockey Helmets
The teams will pick up their helmets at TD Garden on November 23rd before participating in a one-hour clinic hosted by select Boston Bruins alumni and the Bruins Youth Hockey Development team.
“While few would argue that youth sports, particularly youth hockey, is an essential part of growing up in the region, outfitting teams to keep our kids safe isn’t cheap” said Robert DeSalvio, president of Wynn Everett. “We’re happy to join the Boston Bruins in protecting our local student athletes and helping to make scholastic sports available to all. The lessons and values these kids learn in sports will help them throughout their lives.”
According to an NBC study, youth hockey costs an average of $8,600 per year on equipment, travel and training expenses. In addition, more than a quarter of all helmets worn by hockey players are unsafe, according to an independent study by Virginia Tech researchers.
