Welcome to the fundraising page for the Mustangs. Named after the iconic WWII airplane -- the P-51 Mustang-- we are an all Veteran team that will be competing in the 2019 Bfit Heroes cup.
The Bfit Heroes cup is a weekend Long hockey tournament for Firefighters, Police Officers, Military, and EMS. Over 90 teams will compete on ice to see who will take the cup.
We are fundraising for the Skate for the 22 Foundation. The Skate for the 22 Foundation was created as a way to help end the Veteran suicide epidemic through the sport of hockey. From just a handful of original members, the foundation has grown to well over 200 Veteran athletes. It has expanded to two states with a third state coming soon. Most importantly, this program is working! On the ice and in the locker rooms, people are healing and it's a great thing.
This fundraising will help the foundation continue its mission of providing hockey at no cost to the Veteran. It will also help off the ice by providing assistance to families affected by Veteran suicide. the first $1500 raised pays the entry fee to the tournament. Everything raised after that goes directly to the foundation.
Thank you for donating to this awesome cause. We hope to see you on the ice!
