The Paralympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 concluded on March 18 with Team USA having one of its strongest ever showings at a Winter Paralympics.

 

The U.S. Sled Hockey team won its third consecutive Paralympic title, becoming the first sled hockey team ever to accomplish this feat!

 

Adam Page grew up watching hockey, and always wanted the opportunity to play. He was born with hydrocephalus and spina bifida. Having undergone 10 surgeries, he did not let his disability stop him. He began playing at the age of six with the Buffalo Sabres. After a season on the U.S. National Junior Sled Hockey Team, Page made his debut on the 2007-08 U.S. National Sled Hockey Team as the youngest member of the squad at age of 15. He quickly built an impressive list of athletic accomplishments, making his first Paralympic Team in 2010.

 

Following the Paralympic Winter Games Vancouver 2010, he co-founded the Sled Hockey Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides individuals with impairments the opportunity to take part in Para ice hockey.

 

Many in our hydrocephalus community know and recognize Adam as our 2014 13th National Conference on Hydrocephalus Inspirational Keynote Speaker and an Honorary Chair in our Western New York WALK to End Hydrocephalus.
