Legally Blind Hockey Player Plans Inline Skate from Toronto to Vancouver for Charity in 2009

They told Mark DeMontis he'd never play hockey again. They were wrong. Now he's planning to skate across most of Canada this summer, despite being legally blind, all for charity, to help others like him enjoy skating and life.

DeMontis was a triple-A hockey player in Toronto with hopes of an NCAA scholarship when he was diagnosed with Leber's optic neuropathy, an eye disease that left him legally blind at age 17.

Bicycle Toy and Hobby Sales Tour to Tanglewood Training Ride 2008 Photos Speed Map and Topo Thumbnails

Bicycle Toy & Hobby Sales gaves us a great skate and ride last weekend, even considering some rough road (not the worst gatorback by far, but not as great as the rest) on the spur out to and around Abbotts Creek. We had nice skaters, 4 veterans of T2T and 5 who have yet to experience the glorious weekend...but most plan to.
