GUNSLINGER VETERAN HOCKEY CLUB
4th ANNUAL BFIT HEROES CUP
The Gunslinger Hockey Club (HC) is a Massachusetts based hockey team that is comprised of Veterans, Fire Fighters, Police and EMTs and will be competing in the A Division of the BFit Heroes Cup 2020. We made it to the semi-finals last year and are looking for the win this year, BUT, our main goal is to raise money for the Skate for the 22 Foundation which combats and spreads awareness of Veteran suicide.
The BFit Heroes Cup is a weekend long hockey tournament from April 24-26, 2020 designed to bring Firefighters, Police Officers, EMS, Veterans and Active Military members together to raise money and awareness for multiple charities.
The Gunslinger HC will be raising money for the Skate for the 22 Foundation. The Skate for the 22 Foundation created a community of Veterans through the sport of ice hockey, to help Veterans understand and ultimately combat the stresses detrimental to a healthy mental and physical state. This community of Veteran Athletes can raise awareness for and reduce the epidemic of Veteran suicide.
"Skate for the 22 Foundation" is a Section 501(c) (3) public charity under the Internal Revenue Code.
