n its fifth year, the Contractors & Camo Hockey Tournament had its best year to date, says Brandon Harker, therapeutic recreation coordinator at Challenge Alaska, which oversees the Alaska Warriors Hockey program for military veterans living with disabilities.

Fifty-four participants took to the ice for the three-on-three tournament, held January 7 at the Kelly Connect Ice Center. The event brought in just over $11,000 for the hockey program, the most successful fundraising year so far, Harker says.

The money raised goes to Alaska Warriors Hockey and is used to offset ice time expenses, travel costs, and other expenses. The Warriors team will travel at the end of March to the USA Hockey Disabled Hockey Festival in St. Louis, Missouri and the Hendrickson Foundation National Hockey Festival in Blaine, Minnesota in June.
