Lancer Youth Hockey is located in La Crescent, Minnesota, a community of approximately 3,000 people nestled in the beautiful bluffs of southeastern Minnesota. La Crescent is the Apple Capitol of Minnesota. Our association is made up entirely of volunteers dedicated to providing youth hockey opportunities to the entire region including the communities of La Crescent, Caledonia, and Houston.
The brother of one of our player's has been fighting cancer the last few years. One of our player's grandparent passed way from the disease. It's hard to find someone not touched by it.
I was made aware of the "Hockey Fights Cancer" program at the November 02 Minnesota Wild game. Each year we try to find a charitable event or deed for the kids to participate in.
It's about more than hockey.
