January Athlete of the Month
SABAH athlete Tina Brown, from Hamburg’s Group 1, will lead off the new year as the Athlete of the Month for January! Tina’s positive attitude resonates with all of her fellow skaters on Saturday morning, as she is well known for her hard work and determined spirit. A SABAH veteran of nearly nine years, Tina has continually improved each year as a result of her commitment and perseverance. This year, in particular, Tina has made tremendous progress toward skating independently. Each week, Tina has been steadily overcoming her fear and letting go of her walker.
One of Tina’s most remarkable attributes is her commitment to give back to SABAH and SABAH athletes. Each week during the season, Tina faithfully volunteers for the School Day Adaptive Ice Skating program on Wednesday mornings. With her fellow volunteers from the CAPPS program, Tina works off the ice to organize the skates and helmets for the children in our School Day programs. Always patient and kind, Tina also assists SABAH by picking up the skates and helmets in the locker room after each Wednesday morning session.
For her dedication as both an athlete and a volunteer, SABAH is pleased to name Tina Brown as the January Athlete of the Month.
