Nearly 15 years ago, Steve Sanderson wanted to get more kids playing hockey in Kitchener after realizing many families couldn’t afford it.

He’s the head custodian at Pioneer Park Public School and created the Panther Hockey Program in 2002. Now, he’s been recognized with an Ontario Medal for Good Citizenship by the Ontario Government.

According to the Ontario website, “The Ontario Medal for Good Citizenship recognizes individuals who, through exceptional long-term efforts, have made outstanding contributions to their communities.”

Sanderson’s program offers free gear and ice time for kids in grades one to six. He’s got 145 kids who get the chance to play hockey, and after this recognition, he said he plans to keep it going and potentially grow it with more help.
