Black Girl Hockey Club (BGHC), a woman-founded community space for Black women in hockey, has teamed up with professional hockey player Saroya Tinker to raise money for young Black women athletes.

Together, Tinker and BCHC founder Renee Hess have raised over $30,000 to build a scholarship fund for hopeful Black women hockey players.
