To celebrate winter, Evolve wanted to explore movement during the snowy months.  We landed on a unique aspect of Canadian culture – shinny hockey.

It was around this time that two companies, Tim Hortons and the MLSE Foundation, contributed money to the city of Toronto to keep twelve rinks open until March 22nd.  They would have otherwise closed on February 22nd – right in the prime of winter. We thought that was pretty cool and wanted to highlight what an impact their donation really had.

The short film below pays homage to their generosity and to the essence of what it means to be part of the shinny community.

Skating, stickhandling and a sense of teamwork are a great balance of activity and motivation. Get out there and try it for yourself and share this video to invite others to join!
