The InSports Foundation will be participating in Giving Hearts Day on February 9th 2017 in honor of Zach Kraft, a passionate hockey player from Fargo who lost his battle to cancer at the young age of 22. The funds raised during this day are used to grant youth hockey players from Fargo, Moorhead, and Grand Forks with the Zach Kraft Scholarship which helps waive the fees of their hockey expenses. Help us keep Kraft’s legacy alive and kids in the game by donating on February 9th!
Growing up in Grand Forks, naturally Zach began playing hockey as a kid and instantly became passionate about the sport. When he moved to Fargo his sophomore year of high school, he continued playing hockey, resulting in scoring the game winning goal in the 2012 North Dakota state championship game – which he always dreamed about! Kraft went on to play on various teams in the Midwest, including appearances on the Fargo Force, Aberdeen Wings, and Wisconsin Wilderness.
The Zach Kraft scholarship was inspired by Zach’s dedication to the game of hockey and his ability to encourage others to give their best on and off the ice. Through this scholarship we will inspire kids at a young age to work hard, set goals, and never stop believing in themselves. Last year we were honored to grant 6 families who were going through hardships the opportunity to allow their player to continue to stay in the game. Join our mission on Giving Hearts Day!
