Break out your dull hockey skates. This Saturday is the day to take them to be sharpened at Mallard’s Source For Sports in Nelson, who will be donating all of the day’s sharpening proceeds to stopconcussions.com.
Participating Source For Sports locations across the Canada will be supporting stopconcussions.com, an education and awareness hub for all sports that addresses the growing problem of concussions in sports. More than 5,000 pairs of skates are expected to be sharpened to raise funds for stopconcussions.com.
Skate Sharpening Day is just one of the ways that Source for Sports is opening up the discussion about concussions.
Visit the Head Zone at Mallard’s where their staff will be happy to check the fit and condition of your existing helmet or help you choose a new helmet that’s right for you. The best helmet is the one that fit’s you best.
And while you’re there ask for a stopconcussions.com brochure that will help you better understand the signs and symptoms of a concussion.
