The Boilermaker Road Race, Utica Comets, and The Save of the Day Foundation all teamed up earlier this month to collect sports equipment donations for the underprivileged youth in our community.

The Skates n Sneaks event held March 3rd through the 5th was a huge success. Before three separate Utica Comets home games at The Utica Memorial Auditorium representatives from the aforementioned organizations collected over 90 pairs of gently used athletic footwear and 40 pieces of sports equipment including youth golf sets, hockey sticks and more.

An event was held yesterday at The Boilermaker Road Race offices where two Utica Comets players were there to greet youth in the community to receive their new sports equipment.
