DLA Piper Canada had the privilege of being inducted into the Hockey Education Reaching Out Society (HEROS) Hall of Fame during the HEROS 20th anniversary fundraiser on Thursday, 19 September.
HEROS is a volunteer-driven charity that uses the game of ice hockey to teach life-skills and empower marginalized youth. Over the past 20 years, HEROS has opened 20 programs in 9 cities across Canada, giving more than 10,000 at-risk kids a safe place to learn hockey and, more importantly, life skills.
DLA Piper Canada’s Hall of Fame induction was accredited to their support of HEROS since the society’s inception. The firm has been a proud sponsor of HEROS holiday parties across the country, providing the HEROS kids with on-ice sessions followed by a pizza party with gifts. Founder Norm Flynn expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the firm and to everyone who has volunteered at HEROS events over the years.
