Fondest IHIH memory

“So many life-changing memories that IHIH afforded me! Like Sylvian Ice Hockey camp in Alberta, Canada playing against the Israeli international team @ riverbank. Winning the IHIH Cup with the Blue Devils, my first goal with the Upward fund yellow bees vs the Kings Sharks (1990), playing at MSG to playing 5 great years of hockey with the Harlem Rangers traveling team. It’s hard to choose one but that Sylvian Ice Hockey camp in Alberta, Canada trip was the one that opened my eyes to the world beyond my four-block radius that I grew up in the hood. It sparked motivation to do better and work harder at my dreams.”
