The Stephenson family has shown tremendous strength in the last few months as Ashton learned how to adapt to his new lifestyle. Through great support from friends, family, and medical professionals Ashton is moving forward with a big smile on his face.
On January 26, 2023 friends, family, and some very special guests joined together at Blackbird Public House in Denver to spread the love for the Stephenson family. Dawg Nation was joined by 7 survivors from the Humboldt Broncos and members of Team USA Sled Hockey. It was an incredible evening with an amazing group of people, but what was really special was when we were able to present Ashton and his family with a check for $42,000! It was an emotional presentation with tons of love and positive energy.
Since we presented Ashton with the check he has got back on the ice for the first time since his accident! Saturday, February 11, alongside his dad Jamie, and friend Christian, Ashton tried sled hockey for the first time. Ashton has remained very optimistic about his future and dreams of becoming a sled hockey player. We can’t wait to see him continue to excel and be part of the sled hockey community.
DAWG Nation was saddened this morning to receive several calls bearing bad news. Friends and family are rallying in Thornton this week after news that Ashton Stephenson was involved in a terrible car accident on October 21, 2022. Ashton’s fight is just beginning as he and his family are learning the extent of his injuries and what the future will bring.
