Lakes Region Youth Hockey continues to pray for Grady Shoemaker as he recovers from the accident on Sunday August 17th. A friend of the family set up a youcaring.com fundraiser. Many Lakers families were made aware through Facebook and have generously donated. For any family who was looking for a way to help, we wanted to make this site available to you. Updates on his progress are also provided on the "Blessings for Grady" site.
Lakes Region Youth Hockey is also doing a wristband fundraiser for Grady. Buy your Blessings for Grady red wristband for $1. All proceeds will go to the Shoemaker Family to help offset their costs. We will be selling the wristbands during opening week at the rink and at our golf tournament on September 28th.
If you wish to send Grady a card he returned home on September 12th! Please email email@example.com for his address. He has loved the cards he has received so far from Lakers families and teammates. Thanks for your continued prayers!
