Everything has a history and this is ours. This charity was founded by two young women who were positively impacted by the sport of hockey throughout their lives. Not a big corporation, just two individuals based out of small town Kelowna, BC. They wanted to create the opportunity for others to enjoy and experience the game that had provided them so much in their own lives. So in 2014, Sasha Podolchak and Danielle Grundy started the process of creating The Grindstone Award Foundation. It didn’t take long before it took off and became a national movement, having a rippling effect on families across Canada.
