Rising Innu Hockey Star needs our support

Aries Benuen  is an Innu youth from the Sheshatshiu Innu First Nation  in Labrador, NL, Canada.  According to his grandfather and biggest fan, Sebastien, Aries began watching hockey when he was 4 years old and was seven before his skates hit the ice.  His grandparents have worked hard to help him achieve his potential which  included moving to the neighbouring community of Happy Valley-Goose Bay to meet league residential rules and relocating entirely out of their home province for Aries to play Triple A hockey in Quebec.  Having worked hard last year, Aries has again been accepted into the prestigious Canadian International Hockey Academy   for the 2020/2021 academic year and named as one of the top 15 to represent Canada in the World Cup International Tournament Europe U15 2021.   Aries is a role model to other Innu youth and an inspiration for the entire community.

Covid-19 and the downturn in work has made this year a little more difficult for Aries' family and they need your help.  Grandfather Sebastien will walk 287 kilometres from Churchill Falls, Labrador to Happy Valley-Goose Bay in an effort to raise funds for his grandson.  He is inviting anyone to join him on this walk and to please consider a contribution to the fundraising campaign.

We'd like to hear from you and invite you to stop by on Facebook at  Aries Manteau Benuen Fan Page.

Your support is appreciated! Tshinunaskumitinau - Thank you!!
