To cap off a busy March filled with events like Winter Carnival and the end of the winter sports season, Northwood’s service organization CARE organized a hockey tournament fundraiser called Skate it Forward on March 24. Led by Senior Morgan Broderick ’19 under the guidance of faculty members Jeff Nemec ’05 and Aerie Treska, this year’s event raised funds for the Ray Pfeifer Foundation, a charitable organization started by a group of FDNY first responders, including alumnus Rob Serra ’97. Serra is a retired New York City firefighter whose first day on the job was at Ground Zero on 9/11. The organization works to raise money for 9/11 first responders with medical needs not covered by insurance.

Skate it Forward boasted 14 teams and countless volunteers this year. The event raised over $1,000 for the Ray Pfeifer Foundation.
