The Minnesota Wild featured ACES and the involvement of Wild players Matt Dumba and Nino Neiddereiter. See an excerpt below and check it out the full feature here!
Dumba has been an ACES player representative since 2016. Earlier this year, Dumba was awarded the Locke'd In award by ACES at their All-Star Evening event. The award, named after former Vikings Punter Jeff Locke in honor of his outstanding service with ACES, is given to a dedicated mentor for outstanding volunteerism and their commitment to after-school programming.
“Nino and I recognize the importance of the work ACES and the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities do with at-risk kids to help them succeed later in life and in school," said Dumba. "We are excited to provide kids the opportunity to experience a Wild game in a way they may never otherwise be able to and connect them firsthand with the sports-based math curriculum they experience in the ACES classroom.”
