Parkway Youth Hockey is an organization that maintains and runs a hockey program open to and inclusive of all interested youth of the Parkway area: i.e. West Roxbury, Roslindale, and Jamaica Plain. The program is designed to teach and develop hockey skills at all times emphasizing the importance of sportsmanship, fair play, teamwork and responsibility in the overall context of having fun. When a player is assigned to a travel team, preference is given to the Parkway Youth Hockey member.
My name is Anne Marie Dorsey and many of you might know me from the Learn to Skate Program if you have a child between the ages of 4 to 17. Over the course of the last 13 years I have volunteered as a Learn to Skate Coach and Coordinator for Parkway Youth Hockey. It is a volunteer position that gives me joy and leaves me with a sense of accomplishment while giving back. I know the kids as well as the parents appreciate all that I as well as the other volunteers do week in and week out to teach their children to skate and are always supportive. Now I am asking for your support in a different way.
What you may not know about me is that over the course of the last 6 years my family and I have been involved with Tedy's Team (Tedy Bruschi Foundation) and the American Stroke/Heart Association as members who run the Boston Marathon. After this year’s race we can count five of my 13 siblings (yes I am one of 13), as well as my cousin Tom, will have run the marathon thus far and my youngest sister Margaret has run twice. Last year those who ran in 2013 (Mark and Tom) also ran again. Team Casey was initially the idea of my sister Margaret who after losing over 100 pounds decided to take on the challenge and run in memory of my dad.
Having experienced firsthand my father suffering through two major strokes during my early adulthood which caused him to spend the last year of his life struggling with cerebromedullospinal disconnection (a rare neurological disorder that causes complete paralysis) my family is driven to make others aware of the warning signs of stroke. Over the years through events and fundraising we have educated hundreds and raised thousands. This year is not different in terms of what we will be doing.
What will be different this year is the fact that my mom passed away this past August and as the " Captain of Team Casey" and the women who showed us her strength and faith through her actions and support for many years she is and will be missed at our Team Casey Fundraiser. However my mom would want this legacy to continue and thus we are more determined than ever to ensure we reach many more with our message about the signs of stroke and break records with fundraising for this important cause so very important and dear to each of us.
I am writing to ask if you might consider joining TEAM CASEY for TEDY's TEAM on Friday, March 20 from 7 p.m.-12 p.m. for a night of music, raffles and fun. A flyer with details is provided with this email or you can check us out on facebook
