The Charlotte Checkers have been so inspired by  9-year old hearing impaired hockey skater, Luke Brenes, that they have adopted him into their team.  Yesterday, February 10, they gave back to Luke and to other hearing impaired kids who are facing similar challenges.

At the beginning of their game against the San Antonio Rampage Brenes, who wears hearing aids,  got to drop the puck for the start of the game.  Luke  is raising money for other hearing impaired kids to get hearing aids through BEGINNINGS of North Carolina. Beginnings is a non-profit agency providing families with children who are deaf or hard of hearing with emotional support, resources and referrals.  Services are free to parents in the state of N.C.  For more information on Beginnings of N.C. go to www.ncbegin.org.

After the 1st period the Checkers presented Luke and his family a check for $5,000 for Beginnings of N.C. They also gave Luke an unofficial Checkers Uniform complete with skates and hockey equipment.  After the game kids at the game got to come down to the ice rink and skate with players from the Charlotte Checkers.  A video has been prepared by the Checkers about Luke.  To view the video go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIGmU19T7ZE

The game, played at Time Warner Cable Arena was against the San Antonio Rampage.  This was the second meeting at home with the Rampage earning the Checkers a split with the Rampage winning Saturday night’s game 3 to 2 and the Checkers winning Sunday 2 to 1.  The Checkers record is now 28-16-2-3. The Checkers next home game is Sunday, March3 at 5 p.m. against the Oklahoma City Barons.  For more information on the Charlotte Checkers games go to www.gocheckers.com
