Since 2014, the Brantford Blast Hockey Organization has been generously hosting Strong Start nights, giving away family passes to children and volunteers in the program. We look forward to these events each and every year, and thank the Blast for being true literacy champions. They care about community and they care about supporting the next generation of readers.

On Friday, February 17th, hundreds of families piled into the Brantford Civic Centre for an action-packed game. The official puck drop was hosted by representatives from our school partners, MPP Dave Levac, and Millard’s Charted Accountants. The excitement of the crowd was through the roof as the Blast took home another victory, beating the Hamilton Steelhawks 5-2.

Many families stopped by the Strong Start booth to share their stories and experiences with Ruth Mills, Program Co-ordinator and her team of Trainer’s. It was also a wonderful opportunity to connect with potential Volunteer Coaches interested in working one-on-one with children in local schools.

Our sincere thanks to Peter Ham, owner of the Brantford Blast, MPP Dave Levac, Millard’s Brantford, and our school and school board partners. We couldn’t do what we do without your kind support, and partnership.
