We could not be prouder of Carey Price, our national ambassador for First Nations, Métis and Inuit (FNMI) communities, who yesterday (April 9) broke the Habs record for the most wins in a single season.
This achievement is the culmination of the hard work and determination Carey has consistently shown since his early days on the ice in his hometown of Anahim Lake, B.C. He may be a star now, but he cares just as much about the challenges faced by the children in his community. That is why his joining forces with Breakfast Club of Canada in August 2014 was such a natural fit.
Along with his wife, Angela, Carey is actively involved in bringing attention to the Club’s work and interacts with his young fans as often as possible. For example, last summer he celebrated the opening of a new breakfast program at two schools in Anahim Lake and, more recently, he welcomed Trent Leon, a young Aboriginal boy and Club member, to Montreal for a very special encounter. The Air Canada Foundation gave Trent the red-carpet treatment by flying him out to live his dream of skating with Carey at the Complexe sportif Bell and shooting a few well-directed pucks at his idol.
Carey’s new record is about so much more than a number. It sums up just how important it is to never give up on your dreams. You may fall, but with determination and courage, not only can you get back up again, you can go further than you ever imagined. The entire team at Breakfast Club of Canada shares these values and strives to spread this message of hope to the children we serve, day after day, from coast to coast.
