As the coaches of the Chilliwack Special Olympic floor hockey team, we would like to send a big thank you out to the Chilliwack Chiefs organization.

On Tuesday a group of their players came out and played a friendly match against our athletes. I have to say, what an awesome group of young men. They were kind and so genuine with their desire for all to have fun. Everyone had a blast and I have such respect for all the guys and the Chiefs as a team.

Chilliwack is lucky to have young men like that come into our city. Thank you, Barry [Douglas] and Harvey [Smyl]. You are all winners in our eyes. I hope the character that I saw in our game brings you far – in your games and in life.

Justin Burnette, Neil Stad and all the Special Olympic hockey players.
