HOCKEY FIGHTS CANCER



Hockey Fights Cancer

Minnesota Wild and Hockey Fights Cancer



Throughout the month of October the Wild will recognize and support different cancer related organizations in a variety of ways. The Wild will host pediatric cancer patients in donated suites and arena seating, as well as plan some fun meet and greet opportunities with Wild players and unforgettable experiences like being Bench Buddies and riding the Zamboni throughout the month of October.

The Minnesota Wild will host their Hockey Fights Cancer Awareness Night on October 23rd, 2014 when the Wild take on the Arizona Coyotes. The awareness night will include an in-game feature of the Wild’s Hockey Fights Cancer month long initiatives, in-arena public service announcements about HFC, and the Wild will host pediatric cancer patients throughout the arena. You will also notice Wild players wearing special HFC jerseys, decals on their helmets, and coaches and broadcasters wearing special HFC ties and pins to help spread awareness. If you’re attending the game, show your support by wearing lavender apparel and accessories along with us to spread awareness across the arena. Unique Wild Hockey Fights Cancer gear is available at all Hockey Lodge retail outlets throughout the month, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting HFC.
