128 will be donating $25 for every Boston blocked shot and $500 for every Boston shutout to help defend the trades. This money will help create future tradeswomen or tradesmen by granting scholarships for tuition and tools up to $2,500 – $5,000 dollars (up to $25,000).

We understand it can be challenging to get started or even know where to start. Who better to partner with than the ultimate line of defense, that is, none other than Ray Bourque to help us Defend The Future of The Trades!
