Glendening, Sheahan to visit Rosedale Elementary

DETROIT - Red Wings forwards Luke Glendening and Riley Sheahan will visit Rosedale Elementary in Livonia, Mich., on Wednesday, March 5, as part of the Detroit Red Wings School Assembly Program sponsored by the Detroit Red Wings Foundation, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and The Kroger Company of Michigan. The program will take place from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. in the school gymnasium.

Glendening, Sheahan and the Red Wings School Assembly Team will introduce elementary students to the sport of hockey through a youth street and floor hockey initiative. The Wings will provide equipment and hands-on instruction to familiarize kids with the sport of hockey and to encourage an active and healthy lifestyle.

The School Assembly Team opens every program with an interactive lesson on exercise and healthy eating, followed by an energetic hockey shootout competition pitting students against teachers. New to the program this year, the assembly will address the growing issue of bullying.

Each school receives two full sets of floor hockey equipment complete with hockey sticks and nets courtesy of the Detroit Red Wings Foundation, with every student receiving a Red Wings folder, a Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan life-size growth poster featuring Brendan Smith, as well as a healthy eating cookbook from the Kroger Company of Michigan.

Now in its fourth year, the Red Wings School Assembly Team has visited 326 local schools, reaching more than 139,000 students and providing 652 sets of equipment to physical education departments throughout southeastern Michigan. This season alone, the Red Wings School Assembly Team has visited 85 schools and reached more than 32,000 students. Notable players and alumni such as Pavel Datsyuk, Niklas Kronwall, Jimmy Howard, Todd Bertuzzi, Kris Draper, Chris Osgood and Kirk Maltby have each attended an assembly.

A special fundraising initiative administered by the Red Wings School Assembly Program has helped local students raise more than $85,000 since 2011 for a variety of charitable endeavors.

This season, the Red Wings School Assembly Team plans to make 115 appearances. The most up-to-date schedule can be found at www.DetroitRedWings.com/schoolassemblyschedule.
