The Fund seeks to help young people of all life circumstances introduce and gain access to ice hockey through financial assistance, resources and support. We believe that the sport of ice hockey teaches life skills and empowers young people to become confident, happy and engaged members in our community. We also believe ice hockey helps develop great character and integrity through the experience of healthy competition, teamwork and the joy of maintaining lifelong friendships.
Bobby Skinner was a young man of “grit” and perseverance. “Never Ever Give Up” guided his all-too short life. The son, and only child of Bob and Tricia Hughes Skinner, Bobby’s life was cut short at the young age of 22 due to an unfortunate accident involving gun violence.
Hockey helped alter their son’s path at a young age. Hockey provides a balance of structure, with important life skills including discipline, teamwork, communication and respect. These life lessons helped Bobby overcome adversity and catapulted him to a successful and meaningful life path. Bobby faced many challenges in his life. He endured years of speech therapy, learning difficulties in school, and bullying. He did not make every ice hockey team he tried out for, but he never gave up. This led him to focus on his physical well-being by running, going to the gym, eating healthier and taking boxing and MMA instruction.
He would never quit, nor would he let any of his friends, classmates or teammates. Bobby was kind, generous and thoughtful. He cared much for the less fortunate. He would want to help others have access to the sport of ice hockey which he loved so much.
