Inspiring Hockey Player Finds Home On Ice For Over 50 Years
Meet 73-year-old Ben Shaw, an inspiring grandfather who refuses to give up on his passion for hockey!
Ben has been playing hockey for well over 50 years of his life. He certainly is an inspiration on ice and in life. He believes an active life is the key to staying young. According to Ben, 'We don't stop playing because we grow old. We grow old because we stop playing.'
Ben is also passionate about things like volunteering, photography, music (he plays the washed up bass), skiing, and biking. He says his biggest inspiration is his wife Darla. "If it wasn't for her and her persistence and her support I don't know where I'd be today," says Ben.
Do you recognize Darla? We've done a few videos on her very active lifestyle too. For example, in this video you can hear her share her favorite travel stories with Ben!
