We’re big fans of kids hockey here at Driven Wheels and so are the folks at Dodge Canada. Over the Winter, they have had a contest on the go, where teams taking part in the Dodge Caravan Kids hockey program could submit photos to win funds to keep their team in action. The photos had to include the team, a Dodge Caravan and their local dealership.
The winners this year were the Carmen Novice 1A team from Carmen, Manitoba and the Lakeside Novice Minor team from Lundar, Manitoba, were the runners up.
Well done kids!
