This past fall, the hockey community lost one of its own in Braedon Hyland. The East Ridge High School student-athlete's story was told best in a Fox 9 news report.
Now, the Hyland family, along with friends and SicBuddy.com are teaming up to carry on his legacy while helping others in the local hockey circle.
Together, they've created the Braedon Hyland Hockey Foundation.
June 18, 2012 will mark the first-annual golf benefit for the new foundation at StoneRidge Golf Club in Stillwater, Minn. Below are tournament details and signup information.

About the Braedon Hyland Hockey Foundation
Founded by the family of the late Braedon Hyland, the Braedon Hyland Hockey Foundation seeks to raise money to provide scholarships for players ages 0-18 struggling to afford the sport of hockey. The average family of a hockey player spends approximately $1,000 per child per year. Costs associated with playing hockey include required equipment and uniform needs which players must have to be safe on the ice. For many families the costs associated with the sport of hockey makes participation impossible. The Braedon Hyland Hockey Foundation’s mission is to make the game of hockey possible for all children regardless of their financial situation.
Take time to consider donating to the Braedon Hyland Hockey Foundation or sign up for the first-annual golf tournament. Guests can play or just join for the program and dinner. Sponsorship and silent auction opportunities are also be available.
