‘Sloppy’ hockey is the name of the game early in NHL season

It’s plenty entertaining with all the odd-man rushes and goals, even if the hockey resembles junior or college games more than the pros.

Karla Stento-Debrino has walked previously and is a three-year stroke survivor. Stento-Debrino said the biggest message from today’s walk is, “you just have to keep positive because you are not alone.” BINGHAMTON (WBNG) – On Sunday, for the first time, the Southern Tier Heart Walk was held virtually. “I had to learn how to walk and talk and pretty much learn how to do everything all over again, and I have learned how to do that. But I am still a work in progress.” “It was fun but a little different,” said participant, Karla Stento-Debrino. Stento-Debrino said she wasn’t going to let the coronavirus stop her from helping a cause that has impacted her everyday life. Amy Skiba, is the director of the Southern Tier Heart Walk and she said the event went as well as they could have hoped.  “We had almost 900 people respond to the Facebook event page, so we were super happy with the turnout,” said Skiba. “It’s very rare you find someone who hasn’t been affected by this, so I think that is why we have such wonderful support.” A pandemic or a little rain couldn’t prevent Stento-Debrino and all the other participants from supporting a good cause. “Like” Jacob Seus on Facebook and “Follow” him on Twitter.last_img read more
