December 4, 2017 – Ventec International Group, a world leader in the production of insulated metal substrates, thermally conductive, polyimide & high reliability laminates and prepregs, is proud to support the Skate for the 22 Eagles vs. Boston Bruins Alumni hockey game on December 17th at the Edge Sports Center in Bedford, Massachusetts.
The game is organized by the ‘Skate For The 22 Foundation’, a nationally registered nonprofit organization which was set up in 2015 with hockey as its driver to help raise public awareness of veteran suicide and raise money to provide financial and social support for afflicted families. The Skate For The 22 Foundation provides hockey at no cost to veterans, to get them back into a supportive team environment.
It is estimated that roughly 22 veterans take their lives each day. The “Skate For The 22” Foundation aims to raise public awareness in an effort to end this crisis and provide a non-government support program to veterans. With the Skate For The 22 Eagles playing the Boston Bruins Alumni near Ventec’s USA head-office in Massachusetts in December, Ventec jumped at the opportunity to help raise awareness of the cause by supporting the game.

"I am both shocked and saddened by the statistics coming from military veteran agencies and the Department of Veterans Affairs who have estimated that roughly 20-22 veterans take their lives each day," says Jack Pattie, President Ventec International (USA). "Each suicide is one too many, and without the tireless work of foundations like ‘Skate For The 22 Foundation’ to raise awareness, many more lives would be lost. They are an amazing foundation, and we feel proud and privileged to be supporting them."
