"The Dominik Hasek Youth Hockey League, or Hasek's Heroes, encourages children to begin to build a record of personal achievement, which will help them achieve their life goals in the future. Initiated with a $1,000,000.00 donation from the NHL great Dominik Hasek, the program was developed to provide children from low- to moderate- income families of the city of Buffalo with the opportunity to learn basic skating and hockey skills".
Betterment will support a young boy in the 7th grade who loves everything about hockey and is a part of the Hasek's Heroes program. He plays for the Bud Bakewell Bruins. He lives with his grandmother, and in order to continue playing, must have new equipment. Betterment will provide the needed equipment to help him excel at what he loves.
