Sheldon Kennedy comes to Parry Sound
Parry Sound Minor Hockey has the proud honour of hosting Sheldon Kennedy on Thursday November 8th, starting at 7:30 pm at the Stockey Centre.
Sheldon was the first to speak out about the sexual abuse he endured by his coach Graham James while a member of Swift Current Broncos of the Western Hockey League.
Admission is $5. Tickets can be purchased from Parry Sound Hockey Club Executive members.
Sheldon is one of the driving forces in a program called "Respect in Sport". Respect in Sport is Canada’s only on-line bullying, abuse, harassment and neglect prevention program for coaches and community leaders. Founded in 2004 by partners Wayne McNeil and former NHL hockey player Sheldon Kennedy, Respect in Sport has been developed in consultation with the Canadian Red Cross to protect youth, inform leaders, and mitigate an organization's liability.
