Athabasca Basin Development is proud to be a sponsor for Star-Powered Kids on Ice. On Monday, July 18, six kids from the Athabasca communities were at Schroh Arena in Saskatoon, to participate with about 30 other kids, for an on-ice camp with pro hockey stars Willie Desjardins, Bryan Trottier, Curtis Leschyshyn, Taylor Leier, Cameron Hebig, Lindon Vey, and Nelson Nogier. This event was held in conjunction with Driving Fore Prostate presented by Athabasca Basin Security to benefit St Paul’s Hospital Foundation, which raised $128,296 in support of urology health. Thanks to sponsors Cameco, The Park Town Hotel, St Paul’s Hospital Foundation, West Wind Aviation, Saskatoon Blades Hockey, and presenting sponsor Athabasca Basin Security for making this event a reality!
