UCT has kicked off the Kaye Trainer International Capital Campaign for special hockey programs in North America. This is an ongoing campaign until we reach our total campaign goal of raising $200,000, or 80 Kaye Trainer devices. What is a Kaye Trainer?
It’s a physical therapy device used in rehabilitation centers worldwide and manufactured by Kaye Products. Originally designed for recovery from traumatic leg/hip injuries or illnesses, special hockey programs have discovered an alternative use for the device. According to Dave Chase of the Valencia S.N.A.P. Flyers special hockey program in Valencia, Calif., “The device is THE safest way to teach someone how to skate!”
The campaign is designed to supply every special hockey program with a Kaye Trainer, which includes suspension and harness. In total, each device costs $2,500, including shipping. Every donation helps and 100% of your contribution is tax deductible.
