Tim Hortons Flew A Hockey Team From Kenya To Canada!

This is why we play hockey!

The only hockey team in Kenya has been practising and playing for the love of the game!  They love it so much- they play each other because there is no other team.

After Tim Hortons heard about the Kenya Ice Lions, the company decided to fly 12 members of the senior Ice Lions team to Canada to have the opportunity to finally play their first game ever!

CCM stepped up with brand new hockey gear and that wasn’t the only surprise.  The Ice Lions were about to get a couple new team mates;Sidney Crosby and Nathan MacKinnon!

Tim Hortons also made a donation to Kenya’s Youth Hockey League to help ensure that the Ice Lions’ passion for the sport lives on for the next generation.
