Story

Ken Allore President
Introduction
Twenty years ago, 17-year-old defenseman Kenny Allore who had recently gone to the junior Olympic team camp was going back for the puck in a playoff game in Belmont when he was checked from behind and driven into the boards. When he tried to get up he had no feeling in his body. His neck was broken and his spine was injured; he would never walk again. Ending his dreams of a career as a hockey player.
This has not stopped Ken. In fact, he  has helped implement the stop sign on the back of all Canadian minor hockey player jersey’s to help remind kids to stop and think about checking from behind. Ken has traveled all over South Western Ontario and Eastern Ont. educating over 30 000 people about the dangers of checking from behind and how it has affected his life and many others. 
As President of  “Rockin Wheel” For Spinal Cord Research, and Ambassador for “Shoot for a Cure”  Ken feels that more needs to be done for people like himself. Ken states “I thought; I love music and there hasn’t been anything like a music festival for spinal cord research before and maybe it can catch on throughout North America. I definitely want to make it an annual event, maybe even to host it at the John Labatt Centre in London, Ontario one day”.If we can prevent a needless spinal cord injury from happening to someone else then all our efforts will have been successful.

 All proceeds from Rockin Wheel go directly to “Shoot For  A Cure” - a campaign directed towards awareness and prevention in checking from behind and concussions (Neurotramatic injuries) in hockey and to the research of curing spinal injuries . 

 Ken sincerely thanks all sponsors and volunteers that have been involved with Rockin Wheel and everyone who has attended the events over the past 6 years. 

Ken graciously acknowledges that without your support with Rockin Wheel, the dream of raising funds for this cause would not be possible, and would like to take this opportunity to thank all for helping him make a difference.  

Sincerely , 

Kenny Allore

President Rockin Wheel
