Amazing! That is all we can say; through our generous donors and Board Member' matching, we're that close to reaching our second goal of $100K! AJH indeed couldn't have done it without the kindness of all of you! We're blessed to have strong community support of our Aspen Leafs athletes.
Aspen Junior Hockey
WE DID IT!! AJH has met the fundraising goal of 25K to get the 25K anonymous match! With this, we surpassed 50K!!! We are so thankful for our hockey community. The generous donations keep coming in, and we will continue to raise valuable funds for Aspen Junior Hockey. The AJH Board has pledged another 25K to our fundraising efforts!!! We know that together we can reach our new goal of 100K.
This year has been so difficult on so many, in particular our children. Hockey has offered a mental and physical outlet as well as some consistency in their lives. AJH has done a stellar job of following all the Covid-19 protocols, adapting to all scenarios while keeping our athletes on the ice. Parents, you have continued to support AJH and the guidelines set forth, and it has been commendable that you have kept your children healthy, rested, geared up, and always ready for practices (and games when possible). Our coaches have continued to mentor and develop our athletes while keeping our athletes working hard and having fun! AMAZING!
We are genuinely a hockey family. Thank you for your continued support of Aspen Junior Hockey! The future of our children is very BRIGHT!
Harlan and the AJH Board of Directors
For almost 50 years, Aspen Junior Hockey has served our community by instilling our core values in our children: respect, determination, commitment, and perseverance. We want to take a moment to thank every member and donor for being a part of our Aspen Leafs Junior Hockey Family.
During this unpredictable time, we have remained connected to our families and have been offering ice programs since June 15th. Our kids are still making memories, forming friendships, developing a deep passion for the game, and most importantly, continuing their lifelong ties to our AJH community. We are fortunate to have been able to get our kids back on the ice.
AJH, a 501c3 nonprofit, provides exceptional development for our players while keeping fees low due to generous sponsorships, donors, and fundraisers. When we were mandated to close due to Covid-19, we weren’t sure what the future would hold. We were unable to host our annual Stirling Cup Weekend and we hosted our Fall Faceoff Tournament at less than half capacity. Historically, these two events are our largest fundraisers which provide funds that our organization greatly depends on annually.
This season, we are reaching out to YOU, our beloved AJH family, for support.
We have an anonymous donor who will match up to $25,000 for every dollar AJH can raise! Your generosity is crucial to keeping our kids on the ice. Please consider making a gift that is financially meaningful to you. The money raised will fund scholarships, general operational expenses, equipment needs, and our coaches. These are unprecedented times, but we know we will get through them with the support of our AJH family. As we continue to navigate our day to day lives, we wanted to express our gratitude to YOU for making it possible to provide hockey to our youth.
“Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion: The potential for greatness lives within each of us.” —Wilma Rudolph
