Jones Day and Pittsburgh Penguins supports Mighty Penguins in youth hockey activities

Client(s) Mighty Penguins

Jones Day and the Jones Day Foundation were proud to support the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation and the Mighty Penguins sled hockey program in their mission to actively promote physical well being, encourage teamwork, stress the value of education and provide essential life skills to young people in our community through youth hockey and other activities. In addition to Jones Day Pittsburgh, the Cleveland, Columbus, New York, Boston, Dallas and Washington, DC offices, were challenged to help meet the goal of outfitting at least 20 new Mighty Penguins players for the upcoming sled hockey season. The sled hockey teams are dedicated to children and young adults who are paralyzed from the waist down or suffer from other limiting physical and cognitive disabilities. The cost to equip a player, including insurance, is $1,315. This special fundraising event welcomed all levels of participation, allowing donors to purchase various items of equipment ranging from $35 up to $800. The fundraising efforts wrapped up November 7 and raised over $35,000, fully equipping 24 children, exceeding all expectations.
