Iqaluit Amateur Hockey Association
Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario
Canada's National Men's Sledge Hockey
The Wayne Gretzky Foundation
The Iqaluit Amateur Hockey Association received a plane-load of hockey equipment delivered by Glen Gretzky on behalf of the Wayne Gretzky Foundation to support hockey playing youth in Iqaluit who would otherwise be unable to participate in hockey through a lack of locally available and affordable equipment.
The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario's, Heart & Stroke Restart a Heart, Restart a Life initiative is responsible for placing more than 800 Automated External Defibrillators (AED's) in over 50 Ontario municipalities under their public access defibrillator program. The Wayne Gretzky Foundation supports this initiative with the purchase of 50 defibrillators and training, ensuring placement in a variety of hockey arenas and community centres.
Canada's National Men's Sledge Hockey Team received funding from the Wayne Gretzky Foundation to enable them to attend the 2004 IPC Sledge Hockey World Championship in Sweden.
The Wayne Gretzky Foundation provides support to a broad variety of community initiatives, sponsoring an after school program for children with autism, and partners with organizations such as the CNIB (http://www.cnib.ca), Pink Sticks for Hockey, Right to Play (Right To Play's mission is to use sport and play to educate and empower children and youth to overcome the effects of poverty, conflict and disease in disadvantaged communities.) and Samsung's Four Seasons of Hope (http://www.samsung.com/us/hopeforchildren/).
Providing canadian youth that don't have as much of an opportunity to play hockey that chance by donating a plane-load of hockey equipment which would otherwise be unavailable to them
Providing Canada's National Men's Sledge Hockey team with the funding required to enable them to attend the 2004 IPC Sledge Hockey World Championship in Sweden. Without the funding from the Wayne Gretzky Foundation this may not have happened.
Procrastination is one of the most common and deadliest of diseases and its toll on success and happiness is heavy. -Wayne Gretzky
This reveals that he doesn't procrastinate and a lot of other people do and it's bad for them. As a part of civic responsibility i think this means if you're going to do something do it and don't procrastinate about it.
You miss 100% of the shots you don't take. -Wayne Gretzky
As a part of civics I think this means if you have a chance to change something for the better of Canada or the world as a whole to take it even if its a small change.
