Grace Ann Leslie is a true fighter, on and off the ice. The six-year-old was diagnosed with Chromosome 18 abnormality at the age of three, which has affected her motor skills and ability to speak. Her family has since formed a non-profit organization, Grace Speaks, in order to support local families with similar children who need various forms of therapy. To raise funds and awareness, The Detroit Red Wings Alumni Event was arranged with the help of Gliding Stars of Findlay, a non-profit organization that provides ice-skating programs to help people with developmental challenges expand their confidence and skills. The charity game will feature an amiable ice battle between the Detroit Red Wings Alumni Association and local contenders. Also at the event will be an auction, raffle and sale of items including art by Grace, Vera Bradley creations and Red Wings memorabilia. In order to join the local team or for more information, contact Nicole at firstname.lastname@example.org.
