Dignity After Hockey was created to assist former professional hockey players who have fallen on hard times.

It has been a long-standing tradition in hockey to protect a teammate when he needs help. Unfortunately, many retired players, long since departed from the game, still require help with financial and medical problems.

Kurt Walker is the founder of The Dignity After Hockey. Kurt played in the National Hockey League for the Toronto Maple Leaf. and is determined to unite the hockey and business communities in an effort to aid those in need.
