MacDonald & Max Visit Sparks
Monday, May 18, 2015

The Gladiators were out and about at The Ice in Cumming this past Saturday with fine folks from the Atlanta Sparks Hockey Team for their Sled Hockey Tournament. As a special treat, the Sparks program had the kids come out and enjoy some ice time with Glads Forward Will MacDonald and everyone’s favorite lovable lion - Maximus.

The Atlanta Sparks program aims to create a fun environment for two types of hockey players. Their first team is comprised of athletes with mental disabilities and those with hearing impairments. The second team is a competitive Sled hockey team. With both ventures, they provide a fun safe environment for each set of athletes.

"The Atlanta SPARKS group has been a wonderful partner of the Gladiators for two seasons now," said Jim Hall, Gladiators Director of Community Relations. "They’ve worked hard to raise both awareness and financial support through their yearly Glads/PSP Fundraiser. We’re honored to partner with such an inspiring group of individuals, and we’re excited to welcome the Sparks squad back out with us in 2015-2016."
