Hockey Fights Cancer was founded in 1998 by the National Hockey League (NHL) and the National Hockey League Players Association (NHLPA). Since its inception, the Hockey Fights Cancer initiative has resulted in donations of more than $20 million to support the cancer programs of local and national cancer research institutions, children’s hospitals, player charities, and local charities.
This year, the Mamaroneck Youth Hockey Association, the Town of Mamaroneck Recreation Department's House Hockey program and Mamaroneck High School's hockey teams will team up to support the HFC Assist initiative, joining the NHL, NHLPA, and American Cancer Society in their fight against cancer. We hope to unite our vibrant hockey community to raise awareness and funds to support cancer patients and their families.
We hope you will join the fight and contribute to this fundraiser. And we hope to see you at Hommocks Park Ice Rink during Mamaroneck Hockey Fights Cancer Weekend: Nov. 17-18. Over the course of Saturday and Sunday, there will be 11 MYHA games played as well as a high school varsity scrimmage and the second week of House Hockey (see full schedule below). Whichever game you choose to attend, be sure to wear lavender -- the official color of the Hockey Fights Cancer campaign.
Also, be sure to check whether your company will match your donation. Many companies do -- especially in conjunction with Giving Tuesday (Nov. 27th) -- and corporate charitable matches could double the money we raise!
