For the Love of the Game!
September 30, 2015
Hosted by Karen Leavitt
I am joined this week by Norm Page. Norm was the Head Coach for the Buffalo Junior Sabres Sled /USA Hockey a program linked to the Buffalo Sabres NHL organization. We talk openly about Norm's journey from volunteering his time with USA Sled Hockey and his own personal experience with his son as a player to present day as a Board member He introduces us to the sport of Sled Hockey, what it is, what the requirements are, how it differs from stand up hockey or does it? He speaks candidly about the journey back to the ice for many of the players they range from youth - adult often experiencing life changing events themselves that did not allow them to play stand up hockey. But, the sport of sled hockey along with their love of hockey, combined with shear determination allows them to once again take to the ice. Players play a game they love, and it shows - sled hockey is a game full out heart and soul. Join us for this inspirational, and motivational hour.

The Sky’s the Limit is a motivating, inspirational program which is based on my journey from medical professional to patient, highlighting people from all walks of life and various stages of overcoming adversity, their challenges and awakening to the rediscovery of themselves, a transformation. I engage with a number of successful life coaches, authors, athletes and everyday people who discuss their journey and process as well as exploring the concepts of Eastern and Western medicine. We are all learning life’s lessons every day and living in the moment, no matter where we are in our journey.
