Since 2011, Aurora Ice Hockey has made its mission "empowering kids through teamwork, sportsmanship and fun." Now with house and travel options at all levels from Mite to Midget and a member of the WNYAHL since 2015, the Aurora Ice will find a unique fit for any player seeking to grow their love of hockey.
The Butterfly Foundation is a non-profit organization that endeavors to ignite a movement encouraging people to be kind and thoughtful in everything. It honors Katie Durkin, whose nine energetic years on this earth were indelibly marked by immeasurable love, kindness and thoughtfulness. Inspired by a description of Katie by her classmates as “Kind and Thoughtful in Everything,” the “KATIE” acronym was born. Paired with Katie's hand-drawn butterfly artwork, the imagery symbolizes a life that undergoes a swift and magical transformation while becoming a subject of beauty and inspiration for many. The Foundation's first project is creation of the Butterfly Athletic Park at Wales Primary School.
The mission of the Butterfly Foundation is to advance character development and teamwork among youth of all abilities through athletics, recreation and education.
