The Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute in Duluth offers adaptive sports and recreation programs to youth and adults with physical disabilities and on the autism spectrum.

This weekend the 9th annual Lawmen Hockey Classic kicked off to raise money for the nonprofit to help keep their programs strong.

Twenty-four tournament teams made up of police officers, firefighters and military members from all over the Midwest and Canada hit two ice rinks inside the Heritage Sports Center in west Duluth.

With their sticks they shot around the puck all in the name of good competition, team spirit, camaraderie and to raise at least $10,000 thousand dollars for Courage Kenny.

“Really enjoy the tournament, hospitality is great,” said Darren Manion with the Ontario Thunder Bay Prevention Police. “It’s a great time to get together with law enforcement brothers and sisters and support a great cause and have some fun playing hockey.”

The two day tournament was free and open to the public.

The event ended with a banquet and awards ceremony.
