    On behalf of Ryerson University Athletics, I would like to thank you for the donation of hockey equipment we received to support to support our community engagement initiatives, specifically the Rams in Training program. The donation gave youth, who had never skated or played hockey prior to attending the program, a chance to participate in a memorable hockey and leadership experience. Youth who pass through the Mattamy Athletic Centre will benefit from this equipment for years to come. Thank you for your support and may your passion and generosity continue to benefit youth across the country.
