Willie O’Ree 60 Anniversary
Sixty years ago today, Willie O’Ree put on a Boston Bruins sweater
to break the color barrier in the National Hockey League.
Tim’s Kids salutes Mr. O’Ree’s accomplishments I’m not
only that feat, but in doing so while secretively blind in one eye.
He broke down barriers to our sport.
Tim’s Kids was founded with the same motivation, to break down
barriers play hockey: financial, physical, and cognitive. We are proud
to be associated with Mr. O’Ree as an affiliate of the NHL’s Hockey
is for Everyone initiative.
Thanks for everything you have accomplished, Willie!
