|Shorty Brown has been an enthusiastic promoter of physical activity for decades. Settling in northern Canada in the 1950s, this respected entrepreneur was instrumental in organizing minor hockey in Yellowknife. He also launched the highly successful "Skates for the North" program, which has delivered over 8 000 pairs of skates and more than eight tons of hockey equipment to communities throughout the Arctic. His dedication has given young people a positive outlet through which they learn valuable life skills.
