Throughout the 1970s, brothers Jerry and Jeff Kellogg of Muskegon, Michigan were a force to be reckoned with in the sport of marathon canoe racing. Growing up along the north branch of the Au Sable River as second generation paddlers, the brothers won their first local race as teenagers and never looked back. The brothers took home consecutive wins in the 120 mile Au Sable Canoe Marathon; all while battling 15 hours of steady paddling through the night. Their contribution to the sport of canoe racing set new standards for racers to come with over a decade worth of top 5 finishes.

Detroit is known as Hockeytown. When the city had to close many of its recreation centers in the early 1990’s, the once abundant outdoor ice rinks disappeared with them – except one. This is the story of the Southwest Detroit community that saved a rink that helped stabilize a neighborhood and give inner city youth the opportunity to play the game of hockey.
