“We put it out there on Twitter and the next morning I woke up and our DM was full of people that wanted to either help in some way, cover the rest of it, or cover all of it,” said Travis Morgan, CEO of Sioux City Musketeers. The Sioux City Musketeers saw Kaiden’s plan online and decided to help him out and promote his stand through social media. Morgan said Ted Colley, Executive Director of Prodigy Sports out of Canada, was one of the people who wanted to help Kaiden.
“It’s basically for me to get a new sled. It’s basically if you didn’t have lunch you could just come down here and here and grab some lunch and grab a drink. It’s just basically like a restaurant right now!” said Kaiden. Kaiden wanted some new equipment for sled hockey, so he decided to start a lemonade stand.
After taxes and shipping, Kaiden’s mom said the sled would have cost around $850. “Mostly getting a goal and being a little aggressive,” said Kaiden Cowan.
“It’s absolutely amazing that the community is supporting my son as much as it is. We hear about all the bad and the bad and the bad, and we need to report on the good. The good of the people, the good of the community,” said Tashsa. And Kaiden is pretty happy too. Kaiden’s Mom Tashsa said she is happy to see the community come together for Kaiden.
Now, all of the money Kaiden makes from his stand can go toward other sled hockey gear and travel expenses. “He said ‘I don’t care how much it costs. I’m going to pay for it. It’s covered. And it’s not about me. It’s about that young man playing hockey,” said Morgan.
