uAttend, a top provider of employee time clocks, is one of the proud sponsors of the 5th annual “Rinks to Links” charity golf tournament. The golf event will be donating proceeds to a Michigan-based disabled hockey team – the Grand Rapids Sled Wings. uAttend has been an active participant in a number of charity events since its inception, and has been doing its part in raising funds for various noble causes. The company is pleased to be a part of this fundraising effort.
Sled hockey is a rapidly growing sport for disabled persons across the United States. It not only provides recreational opportunities for the disabled, but also offers great therapy in a safe environment for people with physical and developmental disabilities. The sport is divided into four categories accommodating to different types of physical disabilities, and is recognized by the national hockey association.
The Grand Rapids Sled Wings team is based out of Griff’s Ice House in Grand Rapids, and has been competing in the sled hockey circuit for 12 seasons. The team consists of 27 players, ages 8 to 18, all whom hail from Western Michigan. As with any team sport, there are costs involved for uniforms, equipment, operating expenses, rink rentals and travel expenses. It is events like the annual Rinks to Links fundraiser that help the team members and their families cover their expenses.
As a leading provider of web based time clock systems with cloud computing, uAttend also leads the way as a strong supporter of such charity events. This specific sponsorship will go a long way in providing financial support for the Grand Rapids Sled Wings disabled hockey team.
uAttend cherishes its philosophy of being a socially responsible corporate entity, and look forward to the Sled Wings team to inspire others to overcome their physical challenges and disabilities.
