In 2008, Liam Deakin's class at Duke of Connaught PS was unable to go skating because only six kids in the class had skates. Liam asked his dad, Brent Deakin, if there was something they could do to help. His dad gladly donated two pairs of skates to the class, but it still wasn't enough.
After contacting Goodwill, Deakin was able to gather up 100 pair of skates of various sizes which were donated to Duke. Many of those were in desperate need of sharpening so Deakin teamed up with Play It Again Sports on Gerrard Street and got a great deal on the sharpening plus a quick turnaround.
