The 2017 Bluesfest 3-day festival will be in support of RockinWheel for Spinal Cord research. RockinWheel was created to raise money for Spinal Cord research, support those affected by this injury, and provide an outreach program to try and educate young people about preventing these injuries.
RockinWheel president, Ken Allore was a talented young hockey player when he was checked from behind in a hockey game and his life was changed forever. He went from being an active athlete to being a quadriplegic. In 2004 Ken dedicated himself to becoming part of the solution and started the RockinWheel festivals.
“RockinWheel is very excited and honoured to be a part of this year’s London Bluesfest. We are partnering with the Bluesfest family and are striving to make it an institution within the London music scene,” said Ken Allore, president of RockinWheel.
RockinWheel has partnered with “Stop Concussions” and “Shoot for a Cure” and Allore has spoken to thousands of young people about the tragic and needless injuries caused by checking from behind in hockey.
Additional local greats will be announced in the coming weeks to play on a second festival stage and details on the 2017 “Eight Bar Blues” program, which will integrate the London Bluesfest at bars within the downtown core.
