Every November, players on the MDSC All Stars team, many of whom have a loved one with Down syndrome, sharpen their skates to face-off against the Bruins greats of yesteryear. For sixteen years, the MDSC and the Boston Bruins Alumni have joined forces to support people with Down syndrome and their families. The steadfast support has raised significant funds to benefit MDSC's programs and services and has helped the general public understand that people with Down syndrome should not be defined by their diagnosis.
This year, the Boston Bruins Alumni have completely re-imagined the charity hockey program during COVID-9, so that our skaters can safely enjoy hockey while raising funds to support the important work of the MDSC. Now more than ever, the MDSC needs support to continue to be able to provide programs and services for individuals with Down syndrome and their families.
