On Friday, Woodbury High School held a fundraiser for Sicbuddy, a nonprofit for the Braedon Hyland Hockey Foundation that provides funding to hockey players for everything from equipment to camps.

The fundraiser was a regular event of the WHS community outreach class, which also raised money for the Woodbury-based food shelf on Friday.

Walker Hyland, Braedon’s brother, was on hand for Friday's event. He said it was nice to see his brother’s friends again and watch students enjoy a dunk tank and obstacle course set up at the high school.

“It’s pretty awesome that everyone gets together for this,” he said.

Shaw, enrolled in the community outreach class, said she has gotten to know the Hyland family and was glad her fellow classmates could help Sicbuddy. (The foundation’s name comes from a phrase Braedon would often use, Walker said.)

Theresa Von Ruden, a Woodbury High School teacher, founded the community outreach class at Woodbury more than a decade ago. The students volunteer at various spots in Woodbury—nursing homes, schools or with the city, she said.

“It’s been amazing,” Von Ruden, said.
