Dear Athletes Helping Athletes,

My name is Nick Halapchuk. I am 16 years old and I was born with Spina Bifida. I need to wear AFO braces to help me walk. I am on the Pittsburgh Mighty Penguins and Mid American Eagles sled Hockey teams.

I recently attended a sled hockey camp in Rochester, New York. The coaches at the camp said I needed to work on my speed and shot power. One of their suggestions was to get a handcycle to get stronger. I would really appreciate it if you would consider letting me be a recipient of one of your handcycles.

Sincerely,

Nick Halapchuk


Dear Athletes Helping Athletes,

My 16-year old son was born with Spina Bifida. He requires the assistance of AFO braces to walk and has had numerous surgeries over the years. He has tried a number of activities including TOPSoccer, adaptive swimming, etc., but his favorite sport is sled hockey.

Nick recently attended a sled hockey development camp in Rochester, New York for the first time. He is excited to improve in the sport and received many suggestions about off-ice training and equipment. One of the ways in which he can improve in the sport is by building upper body strength, and he was advised that using a handcycle might be beneficial. We believe that the use of a handcycle will help him to improve in his favorite sport; however, we also believe that it will allow him the opportunity to be more physically active AND to socialize with his peers.

We would really appreciate it if you would consider Nick as a recipient of one of your handcycles.

Sincerely,

Julie Halapchuk
