Keweenaw Health Foundation continues partnership with Calumet Hockey Association

The Keweenaw Health Foundation (KHF) is thrilled to announce the continuation of its partnership with the Calumet Hockey Association (CHA) as the Zamboni Sponsor. This sponsorship will be used to help offset operational expenses and keep the cost of hockey at a reasonable price. In return, the Keweenaw Health Foundation and Aspirus Health logo is displayed on the Zamboni.

The Calumet Colosseum in Calumet, Michigan has served the community for decades. In fact, it’s the oldest indoor ice rink in the world and home of Kraft Hockeyville USA 2019. And, thanks to the ongoing sponsorship contribution from the Keweenaw Health Foundation (KHF), its future remains bright.

The Keweenaw Health Foundation is known for developing resources which improve the health and well-being of the people in the local communities and working to create a healthier quality of life for the people in the Keweenaw. The Keweenaw Health Foundation is excited to renew its commitment to the area’s youth and community.

“This reoccurring sponsorship highlights the strong bond between the Keweenaw Health Foundation and the Calumet Hockey Association, as well as the shared values and goals that drive both organizations,” said Jenn Jenich-Laplander, Executive Director of the Keweenaw Health Foundation.

The Calumet Colosseum is owned by Calumet Township and serves the community in a variety of ways. The Colosseum supports all levels of hockey, from youth up through seniors, tournaments, figure skating, family rentals and public skating. The facility is also used by the Calumet High School Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps program and school gym classes, among others. October through April, the Colosseum is maintained by the CHA. Over the last decade, the Calumet Hockey Association has made significant infrastructure improvements to the Calumet Colosseum including new side boards, glass, lighting system, new scoreboard clock and new Zamboni.

Mike Jukuri, Calumet Hockey Association President said, “This reoccurring sponsorship from the Keweenaw Health Foundation aligns with our mission to further the growth and development of young athletes through the sport of hockey. We are extremely grateful to the Keweenaw Health Foundation for their continued trust and support. Together, we look forward to making a lasting impact and achieving new milestones.”

Keweenaw Health Foundation is a non-profit entity that develops resource opportunities to support the healing mission of Aspirus Keweenaw and the communities it serves. This includes equipment purchases, free health screenings, educational programs and materials, and grants to local organizations to help improve the health and well-being of people in the community.
