Following a story from start to finish is always a rewarding process, especially when it ends on a positive note. Some of you might recall the hockey team we worked with back in January after they were kicked out of their ice rink in Greeley due to Carbon Monoxide. Once their story was told, the team got a huge response from the community, raising the $6000 needed to update the system. Even Channel 4 “Paid it 4ward” by giving the team a check for $1000.

Last night, the team hosted a thank you to all those that offered their support. Former NHL player Alain Lemieux, who is running a clinic for the players this week, was at the event for a meet and greet with the guests.

We were more than happy to get the story out to the media & were thrilled to see some coverage up in Greeley, even from the Denver news stations! Check out what Channel 9 had to say.

We’re glad to see that a bad situation can be turned around to tell a positive story. Best wishes to all the players of the Renegade Hockey Team!

How do you turn a tragic story of 30 young Hockey Players who where treated at a local Greeley hospital due to exposure to high levels of carbon monoxide, while at a Hockey Tournament, into a “positive” story? You hire the Stasko Agency to take action!

We helped the Renagade Parents Association get the word out to the media – – rounding up 5 News Stations (Channel 2, 4, 7, 9 and Fox 31) – to hear their story! It’s all about the kids and the parent’s determination to fix the problem and keep the rink open! Channel 4 stepped up to the plate after airing the first story and returned a week later to PAY IT FORWARD by giving the team $1,000 toward ice time and to help get the rink back open!
