We are starting to raise funds to send each of the players families to watch them in Sochi, Russia along with some of the other San Antonio Rampage Sled Hockey players to support each other, just as they did when they were in theater. Our team is a great example of resilience, camaraderie and passion. They have a new normal and thrive with each opportunity they have been given since their injury. Mostly, these guys are proud to once again wear a uniform in which they will represent the USA — just in a different way than they did before. Show your support and donate today!
