The Michigan FAR Flyers have to work hard every season to find funding to keep the team on the ice. But this year is off to a great start thanks to two generous donations. Debbie Teasdale, whose son Tyler passed away in 2007, wanted to make a donation on his behalf to the FAR Flyers, a non-profit organization that includes 30 children and adults with disabilities who play hockey out of Viking Arena in Hazel Park. Debbie Teasdale met with members of the FAR Flyers on July 12 at the Troy Sports Center to present them with a check for $1,000. “The FAR Flyers are a great team to get behind,”saidTeasdale. “It feels good to do something like this; I can feel Tyler smiling down on me when we do things like this in his name.”

“The kids on the team have a great time playing,” said Neimiec. “And we really appreciate this.” And after hearing about Teasdale’s donation, the Troy Youth Hockey Association matched it to bring the total donated to the FAR Flyers to $2,000. Troy Youth Hockey Association board members Chris Kiely and Lee Visbara presented the FAR Flyers with the additional check. “I know that this money will be well spent,” said Kiely. “These kids are incredible and really deserve it.” In addition to the donation to the Flyers, the Teasdales also started the Tyler Teasdale Scholarship Fund, which gives out academic scholarships to hockey players in need of financial assistance.
