Ilan Shterenberg, a goalie for Montgomery Youth Hockey Association is currently serving as a Young Ambassador for the Henrik Lundqvist Foundation.
Shterenberg is on the 14U UA Gold team for Montgomery and began a fundraiser to raise money for a fellow friend, Lamar Collado who was born with a severe form of epilepsy. He is looking to raise money for a customized adaptive bike that will help improve mobility.
Shterenberg first learned about Collado through Freedom Concepts which is an adaptive equipment company that his uncle used to work for. He was recommended by the local hospital as a patient in need.
Ilan Shterenberg applied to the Henrik Lundqvist Foundation and will be presenting his project to Lundqvist, his wife and the foundation’s board in November.
Ilan has raised over $4,000 of his $6,500 goal towards the adaptive bike. To donate to Shterenberg’s foundation and learn more about his journey, click here.
