A tribute hockey tournament for Jamie Coyle took place at the Smithfield Ice Rink in RI over the weekend. Her coaches Henry Sherman, Charlie Stimson and Jim Hopgood talk of her recovery in this video. Click on the video to link to play the Providence Journal story by Glenn Osmundson. On a personal note, it was an honor to take part in this great event to raise funds for Jamie. I’ll update you on the fundraising totals as soon as I know more, but it looks like her coaches were closing in on $11,000 towards the end of the tournament!
- Thanks to Jamie’s coaches for inviting me to drop the first puck to open the tournament
- Thanks to the American Stroke Association in RI for donating the great gift baskets and educational items
