Christian Horizons LifeShare Program hosting Celebration Skate

MEDIA ADVISORY

Join Christian Horizons to celebrate the achievements of two exceptional young men, Dylan and Ben, who are supported through LifeShare; Host Family Services. Dylan rose to fame in December when, after stepping off a train from Toronto, he performed CPR to save a man’s life. Ben and his teammates represented Canada at the Special Olympics Games in Austria and won a silver medal this year.

The celebration skate is an opportunity for Christian Horizons to showcase the achievement of these two individuals. The community will be able to interact with Ben, Dylan, and members of the Buns Master Rollers-Team Canada Silver Medalists Floor Hockey Team. The event is also an opportunity to learn more about our LifeShare: Host Family Services program. Media is invited to attend.
