Tim Hortons Make Kenyan Hockey Players’ Dreams Come True, Fly Them To Canada For The Ultimate Surprise

Tim Hortons made several Kenyan hockey players’ dreams come true as they flew them to Canada to play against an actual team and meet some of their heroes.

The East African country only has one ice hockey team and not a lot of indoor rinks, so as you imagine, scheduling a game can be difficult.

The coffee company helped out and arranged for the Kenya Ice Lions to head to Toronto to play the game properly, with them even getting a surprise from Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby and Colorado Avalanche star Nathan MacKinnon.

Benard Azegere, captain of the Kenya Ice Lions, said in a statement: “It is a dream to not only have the chance to play in Canada but to play—for the first time—in full gear alongside two of the greatest players of the game.

“When we first started playing in Kenya, we didn’t even have full equipment but now not only do we have that, we can say we’ve played a real game with some all-star teammates,” he added, according to the Huffington Post.
