Marlborough, MA --
Bob "Swoop" Sweeney, Director of Development for the Boston Bruins Foundation, and the Boston Bruins Alumni hockey team, took to the ice for an afternoon of Old Time Hockey -- and it was all for a good cause.
The MDSC All Stars took on the Boston Bruins Alumni in a charity event to raise money and awareness fo the MDSC.
The Massachusetts Down Syndrome Congress (MDSC), established in 1983, is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization made up of parents, professionals and anyone interested in gaining a better understanding of Down syndrome.
Its roots trace back to a group of parents, in a living room in 1983, chatting about their children with Down syndrome and how they could connect and educate families, schools and communities.
Twenty-two years later, with over 1,000 members, the MDSC has an energetic Board of Directors, and a vision to ensure that every person with Down syndrome has the opportunity to reach their full potential.
The face off took place at the New England Sports Center in Marlborough, MA, Sunday, November 18, and the whole event kicked off with a free open skate with the Bruin's Alumni, followed by a tightly contested hockey game.
