Fenwick Hockey to Raise Money for a Service Dog for Sean Kristufek!!!

Fenwick Hockey Friends and Family...
Sean Kristufek, a member of the Fenwick Hockey family,  has been approved by 4 Paws for Ability for a service dog!  This great organization is going to train a dog for Sean that will be able to go everywhere with him and help him in many ways.

The dog costs 4 Paws for Ability $22,000 to board and train.  It takes a long time to train the dog.  Once the dog is selected for Sean, it is trained for his specific needs for an entire year and the family goes to Ohio for two weeks to train with the dog when they pick him/her up.  It's amazing!   As a family, they are committed to raising $13,000.  Upon raising those funds, Sean's dog will be selected!

If you are in a position to donate to 4 Paws in Sean's honor, please see the link below. 

Your donation is tax deductible and 4 Paws is a registered non-profit!
For those who want specifics, this is how the dog will help:

The dog will be trained to help Sean remain stable in crowds and make him feel more safe. As many of you know, Sean walks with a limp due to a stroke as a baby, and gets intimidated when he is jostled in large crowds. The dog will stabilize him and give him a feeling of security.

Sean sometimes still yells in school and when he really doesn't feel like working or going somewhere, he will just sit on the ground.  The dog will be trained to nuzzle him and coerce him to get up and stop yelling.  Amazing!

In addition to these great benefits, the dog will also be trained as search and rescue dog in case, God forbid, Sean wanders off.

On top of all these great benefits,  the family believes taking care of his own dog will help Sean feel independent and confident. They are working hard to build up Sean's stamina and to try to get him to run, they think that walking the dog will help with these goals too!
Please give generously so Sean can get his dog as soon as possible!!!
Thank you!
