This special event has come to life because of a former Orono mite #11 Ben Ruedisili who had a special passion for friends, sports and general “A11 IN” spirt. In 2015 Ben’s time with us was cut short, in 2015 on what would have been his 10th Birthday the Hockey community got together for a Birthday Celebration called the BENergy Bash. It honored his energy and brought hockey players from around the state together for a day of fantastic fun and friendship. To spread Ben's passion and share the only way he knew how to play "A11 IN" to future generations of hockey players, last year during the 3rd Annual BENergy bash we launched A11 IN EVERYDAY. A movement inspired simply by the way Ben lived his life, and explained very simply, PLAY HARD | LIVE WITH PASSION | BE INCLUSIVE. We are so excited to continue this tradition with the hockey community again this year, we hope that you join us and be A11 IN EVERYDAY.
